Goodnight Mister Tom: A book review Michelle Magorian’s novel Goodnight Mister Tom is a moving tale of an eight-year-old boy, William Beech who is evacuated from London’s Deptford area to go and live in a village called Little Weirwold shortly before the Second World War breaks out. With an abusive history, a weak, pale William arrives in Little Weirwold and is placed under the care of Tom Oakley, a healthy, middle-aged man famous in his close-knit village for being a recluse, just because he lives next to the local church in accordance to the specific instructions of William’s mother.

The students’ advisor (a teacher responsible for a specific group of students during the school year) serves as a facilitator to prompt and guide the students if needed, but is a silent presence as the students share their learning with their parents. SLCs are not a time to talk about grades, student behavior, but about learning habits, process, improvements and goals. Although there was emphasis placed on an ongoing documentation of each subject area as learning and reflection happened throughout the school year, a significant amount of time was dedicated to prepare for the SLCs

It helps them retell, paraphrase, and sequence key events while considering how a character’s point of view shapes narrative. They have a great time and take a lot of pride in seeing their drawings and voices come to life onscreen. To start the activity, we choose a familiar book as a class before dividing up into groups of two or three students. Why Teachers Should Blog I've never been too big on Descartes.
