Instructions for Reading Lesson 4 on 4/6/20

* Click on the video link below where Mr Hall guides you through lesson 4 and chapter 4 of 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman:



Today's focus: Comprehension - Inference

Mr Hall focuses on two elements to today's lesson:

* The first half of the chapter looks at 'show not tell' in relation to the way Cameron’s upset is clearly portrayed.

* The second half of the chapter looks at use of inference in writing and moves on from 'show not tell' to looking at how Cameron’s actions teach us a lot about him as a character. The focus ends with answering some inference questions from the discussion with Dr Bryce.

* Watch the video clip again.
