Diving Into a Book
Summer time is a good time to escape the heat by bathing in the sea or in a swimming pool.
Diving into a good book is a bit like diving into a swimming pool according to the poet.
Activity: Write a short argument for why this might be a good comparison or why not.
Discussion: How can books –
Immerse us in ‘wondrous lands’
Get us involved in ‘plots and plans’?
Activity: Write a short description of the plot of a story you have just read or are reading and talk about what new ideas, information, or ways of thinking it has shown you. How is it different to other stories you have read? How is it different to your own life and experience?
