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 at the left 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 in particular – with audio support for those for whom English is a second (or 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, and is now distributed by Macmillan Australia: ISBN 186408751X.
