Year 9 English – Reading and Writing
February 7, 2020
This week at Assumption College English Program, the year 9 students have been practicing their reading and writing skills with Mr. Dan Cracknell. First the students were shown a picture of a famous location in Tokyo (Shibuya Crossing) and asked to describe it in 150 words. This forms part of the shorter IGCSE writing task, and is good for practicing descriptive writing. Next, the students read two texts on different topics and discussed them in pairs. They then answered comprehension questions on both texts, and also answered longer response questions.
