Mr Porteous' Reading Group Videos - Week 3

Another week of novel fun!  This week the learning intention is to develop critical thinking skills.  To realise that as we learn more about characters and see how they act, we develop opinions about what they are like and judge their actions as right/wrong or good/bad choices.  This helps build our engagement with a story.
