Literacy Groups

Each literacy group is reading a different book set in Asia. My group is reading Little Brother by Allan Baillie which is set in Cambodia in the time of the Khmer Rouge. It tells the story of Vithy, an 11 year old boy who escapes from the Khmer Rouge and must undertake a perilous journey to reach the border and safety.

Today we discussed the story so far and then read the next few chapters in small groups or pairs. The students are learning to read the book and then think about what they've read. They're learning to give opinions and to justify their ideas by referring back to the text. Enjoy these photos of the students at work!
