Wandering Girl Worksheets
Wandering girl worksheets
Wandering girl is the moving story of a ‘mission’ childhood, by Glenyse Ward, first published by Magabala Books.
The cover you see is my easy-read adaptation, and the worksheets that go with this edition were written after talking to staff at SIDE – the School of Isolated and Distance Education, here in Western Australia. They were looking for self-paced materials that they could use with isolated Indigenous Australian learners (for some of whom, English is a second, third, or fourth language).
I hope that the worksheets will also suit adult learners! Wandering girl is a great book to stimulate debate, personal writing and critical thinking – and in this case, language skills.
The easy-read adaptation of Wandering girl was published as part of the Australian Readers Collection at Macquarie University, later distributed by Macmillan Australia: ISBN 186408751X.
