Trash? is a gem of a book for an English teacher – the kind that doesn’t come around that often. ?It’s a fast-paced thriller with a highly driven plot that swirls along with increasing fervour building ?to a beautiful climax; it’s told by multiple equally loveable narrative voices; offers itself to a range of ?moral discussions and could inspire some wonderful creative work from the students. ?
It would be just as suitable for a class of keen readers as it would for those more hesitant readers ?who enjoy a fast moving plot and not too many words on a page.
These resources are pitched at Year 8 but an enthusiastic Year 7 class would also do well with the ?book. ?The book would be valuable for assessment of a range of focuses, but these are the ones that have ?been specially identified for the suggested activities.
