Author in Residence – Tim Pegler
This week Tim Pegler, author of the novel Five Parts Dead came into the College; whilst here Tim spoke to all Year 10 students about this novel – their current text study. He ran a workshop with each class and students were able to ask questions about the text and also the author’s intent. It really is a privilege for students to work with the author of the text they are studying, feedback from students has been very positive. Tim also spoke to our Year 7 students about the value of reading a variety of materials and encouraged them to participate in the Premiers Reading Challenge.
This residency is a joint initiative of the Resource Centre and the English Learning Area.
