PERSPICACITY – READING EXTENSION
the quality of having a ready insight into things; shrewdness.
“the perspicacity of her remarks”
The Perspicacity Reading Extension Program challenges highly capable children to develop a greater understanding of literary devices used by authors to capture their audiences. Each term, a carefully selected group of children will work with Trish Wallace to read and study a specific text. As they read together, they will investigate strategies and behaviours that are used to support reading for meaning and how good readers use these strategies simultaneously to help them think within, about and beyond the text.
