Reading sample

My reading goal this term was to… Compare

TASK inquiring readers go through a process to gather, organise and respond to new information. We have been using  the ‘GET IT, SORT IT, USE IT’ process for our own reading inquiry.

My inquiry question was… how do writers get there books published


GET IT...use a range of sources by questioning and predicting

SORT IT...analyse and sort information to answer my question: see if my thinking has changed, look for patterns by questioning inferring, summarising

USE IT…discuss what I have found out with others and make connections


I can research using a range of sources

I can keep asking questions as a research

I can sort information and see patterns

I can show changes in my thinking

I can co-operate with others to discuss ideas

I can share my learning with others

I can manage my own learning and behaviour to work independently



How did my thinking change during my inquiry? What patterns did I notice?

I thought that writers had to be choosen to be a writer but then with a bit of research I found they just had to write a book and they could publish it them self. I noticed that most writer read other writers books.

Feedback/feedfoward: Aria I think you did really well but next time you could put more generalisations and when you do add generalisations make them clear.

  1. Has this inquiry inspired you to keep writing? Why/why not? You made some great connections during this inquiry Aria, I hope that using this inquiry process has taught you how important it is to spend time sorting and analysing the information!
