Bindi – Mount Martha PS responds

Shadow Judges at Mount Martha Primary school were given a choice of 10 reading response tasks to complete after reading the shortlisted texts. The responses were designed to be shared with the wider school community in the hope that they would promote interest and borrowing of the Younger Readers shortlist.

When responding to the texts, shadow judges were asked to share their opinion about the text, identify devices used by the author and respond to the specific CBCA judging criteria.
