Based on what you have read so far give a brief summary of the plot and main characters of the novel. Is the book what you expected it to be ? Have you read anything that you think may have contributed to the controversy of the book yet ?
WEEK 1. What is the name and author of the novel you have chosen. What prior knowledge do you have of your novel. Were you aware of any controversy ? Can you suggest any reason why you think it may have been controversial based on the blurb or introduction to the novel you’ve had? Who do you think may have been concerned about it ? Why did you select this novel in particular ? Is it the type of novel you would usually choose to read ?
By the end of this week you will need to record on here the name and author of the book you have chosen. You will have friday's lesson to access the computers if you need to. Be aware if you are accessing this site you will need to use the password ' 2016 ' to get to my website.
Please be aware the blog posts are dated for each week but are in reverse order ........ I have included them all so as you complete your novel you can add your blog posts as you wish. Each blog will be marked at the end of the indicated week though so mut be submitted by then. eg Week 1 blog will be marked Friday week 1
