Robyn and I were lucky enough to meet up with Aaron Wilson on Friday and check-in with him about our planned interventions. It was beneficial to have the conversation about my thinking and what I planned to do as it helped me consolidate my aims and what I was going to talk to the students about to introduce the intervention.
I have a mystery text that I have broken up into 3 parts, all at crucial points in the story to help the discussion to be about the clues we have so far and what we think will happen next. This is what the slide for the week looks like on our class site.
Aaron suggested we also talk about the meta-language of a mystery text as there is a 'red-herring' used in the story.
