Writing - Unit 4 Novel as Theme
The Invention of Hugo Cabret - Brian Selznick
In this unit, we are learning about different forms of writing: diary, monologue, prediction, letter, summary.
We will use the novel and its themes to inform our writing.
The outcome of the unit will be a short story about an invention.
All writing builds on previous learning - for example, relative clauses, using semicolons in long list descriptions, and blended sentences.
The new writing skill that we will develop is - how to write an action sequence.
