We will choose a novel(s) to read over the six weeks. I will provide a Notice & Note chart on the first day of class for learners to record any signposts that they notice as they read.

Progress will be assessed through verbal and written feedback. Learners will also be expected to look for the signposts between classes and record any they find on the chart provided. We will also do a Kahoot review.
