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.
