    Sing to the Dawn Novel @ Open Library

    Hello fellow teachers and students. By now, I hope everyone has finished reading (ahem) and analysing this novel. If you haven’t don’t start panicking. Left the book at school? Don’t panic too!

    All you need is a free Virtual Library Card from Internet Archive/Open Library. You can sign up with your existing Google account or your choice of sign up options, go to your mailbox to verify your e-mail address and done. You can login to Open Library and have virtual access to more books than you can ever read.

    Here is the link to the digitised version of Minfong Ho’s Sing to the Dawn novel (this link is completely legal, no worries!)

    https://openlibrary.org/books/OL5059695M/Sing_to_the_dawn

    Click BORROW to start reading the novel. You can borrow the novel for 13 days!

    Students! You can use the On-the-Go Reading Organiser & Revision Companion to read and analyse the novel as you go along!

    p.s/ If you are familiar with Adobe Digital Editions reader, you can download the acsm file in ePub or PDF format (but I strongly suggest choosing the PDF format because the OCR doesn’t digitise some words and names correctly (e.g Takchit became Takehit instead!)

    Happy reading!

    OTG Reading Organiser & Revision Companion (for SPM Novels)

    Good afternoon! Today I would like to share the template I’ve used with my students for a few years to read, analyse and understand the novel. Yes, I am painfully aware that some people choose to only read the chapter synopses instead of the whole package deal.

    I believe that reading the novel in full and critically analysing it as you go will not only help you answer every kind of novel question thrown your way easily, but it will also help you with your English as a whole. After all, one of the best ways to master a language is to READ A LOT.

    The organiser is simple! Here is a blank template and below it are some examples of filled columns to demonstrate how it’s used. Click the download button to download the file (next to the zoom option).

    **sample inputs are based on classroom discussions of the novel Sing to the Dawn by Minfong Ho

    Tips: If you have an iPad or a tablet with a pen/ stylus (or a computer with a pen input), you can use handwriting -friendly apps to duplicate the pages.
    Tips 2: You can also print the handout and duplicate page 2.

    Happy reading AND writing. Reading helps you climb stairs but writing will help you reach the next level 😉

    [For Teachers] The Quick “P.O.E.T.R.Y” (Tasks + Handout)

    As a big fan of prose and poetry, I’ve always been of the opinion that the present-day curriculum doesn’t integrate enough of them. Instead of seeing the literature component as yet another a hurdle on the question paper, the poems should be enjoyed fully.

    To have a more focused reading in the classroom but with limited time (yes we don’t usually allocate a lot for the literature component, sadly), I use the P.OE.T.R.Y handout with my students before, while and after reading. You can assign the tasks to be done individually, in pairs or even as a roundtable activity.

    Below are examples of handouts I used with my form 5 classes.

    [For Teachers] Pendekatan Mudah “ABCD” Dalam Penulisan Objektif & Kriteria Kejayaan

    Ada yang minta saya kongsi versi BM. Lebih kurang macam ni yang saya buat ya.

    A – Audience (Siapa klien/ target kita?)

    Pada akhir PdPc, murid 5EKO dapat:

    ** perincikan murid yang mana, jangan tulis secara umum.

    B – Behaviour

    Apa yang kita mahu pelajar buat. Contohnya:

    Senaraikan 5 faktor yang _____ …

    C – Condition

    Pelajar perlu buat B tadi dalam bentuk apa?

    Contoh:

    … di dalam peta buih berganda…

    D – Degree

    Tahap yang kita ingin ukur murid kelas tersebut dalam menyiapkan C tadi.

    Contoh:

    …. dengan lengkap.

    Objektif penuh:

    Pada akhir PdPc, murid 5EKO dapat:

    Senaraikan 5 faktor yang _____  di dalam peta buih berganda dengan lengkap

    KRITERIA KEJAYAAN

    Perlu dinyatakan berapa ramai murid yang dijangka boleh menyiapkan tugasan dengan sempurna. Selebihnya mungkin di tahap sederhana atau lemah. Di sini boleh kita kesan golongan yang perlu diberi latihan pemulihan (lemah), pengukuhan (sederhana) dan pengayaan (cemerlang).

    Faktor “C” di bahagian objektif tadi lah yang akan ditulis di ruang Kriteria Kejayaan. Contohnya:

    20 daripada 28 murid kelas 5EKO dapat:

    1. Membina peta buih berganda tentang ___
    2. Menulis surat kepada pengarang

    Semoga Bermanfaat.

    [For Teachers] Writing Lesson Objectives & Success Criteria

    If you’re having a hard time writing learning objectives for a three-part lesson, look up and read about these three approaches:

    1. Robert Mager’s Performance-Based Learning Objectives
    2.The ABCD Model for Writing Objectives
    3. Gronlund’s General and Specific Cognitive Objectives

    This is how I do it:
    A – Audience (Be specific about the audience)

    At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO will be able to:

    B – Behaviour (What do you want them to do?)

    List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision…

    C – Conditions (in what form must the student complete the action in B )

    … in a bubble map…

    D – Degree (how far/ to which extent are they expected to perform?)

    … with the correct spelling.

    Complete example:
    At the end of the lesson, students of 5EKO (A) will be able to:
    List down 5 factors that influence one’s decision (B) in a bubble map (C) with the correct spelling (D).

    WHAT ABOUT THE SUCCESS CRITERIA?

    Based on the above example, C is what you’d like the students to produce. So, it goes like this:

    12 out of 12 students are able to successfully:
    Create a bubble map on what influences one’s decision.

    Best regards,
    Adlina.
