Don't call me Ishmael - Blogging Task

We have just started a novel study for Reading with students from Year 5-7, reading the book 'Don't call me Ishmael' by Michael Gerard Bauer. This is a special assignment though as we are using OTLS (Online Teaching and Learning System) for the first time for setting tasks for students and students are using the system to submit their tasks. One of the tasks from Part 1 of the Novel study is to discuss a question with the group reading the book - and here's where they will do it!

Discussion Question:

Why do you think Barry Bagsley makes fun of Ishmael's name? Look at Ishmaels suggestions for what he should do about Barry's bullying Pg 43-44. Do you think any of these would work? What would you suggest he do?

Remember to not only repond to the question but also to your fellow classmates comments - You should leave at least 3 comments for this message over 5 days.

I think our blog is going to be interesting because we write about the books we read and we are country kids so you might learn something from us.
We mostly post about what we are raeding and we als0 review and rate the book. Occasionaly we post photos of things that are happening in our school.
We really hope that you enjoy and learn from our blog.
