A school where everyone can succeed


Learning Objective:

To analyse the text

Firstly,  think about the definition of the word, 'analyse' .  What does it mean? How could you check it's definition?

What could be used to find it?

Normally in class we would read a text. However, lockdown prevents us from doing so. Therefore, I am posting a video of the text-Shaman's Apprentice-for you all to watch. (Visual and audio learners be alert!)

The Shamans Apprentice
