This week at Assumption College English Program, the Year 7 students have begun reading a new novel with Mr. Dan Cracknell, entitled “Island of the Blue Dolphins”. This classic American tale written by Scott O’Dell, tells the story of Karana the girl who is left stranded alone for years after the rest of her tribe leave without her.
Hers is not only an unusual adventure of survival, but also a tale of natural beauty and personal discovery. Today the students each read a section of text, and then answered questions and built up their vocabulary lists. A great way to get back into the classroom!
