Transforming Your Thinking

Synthesising and Organising Ideas as we read

Read Aloud: Vampyre by Margaret Wild

Learning Intention: to be able to reflect on current understandings of the text using imagery.

The Explanation Game

Take a closer look at the image from the book that you are trying to understand

Name It. Name a feature or aspect of the picture that you notice.
Explain It. What could it be? What role or function might it serve? Why might it be there?
Give Reasons. What makes you say that? Or Why do you think it happened that way?
Generate Alternatives. What else could it be? And what makes you say that?
