The Gradual Elephant

Mpole is a 12 year old African elephant who has been forced to leave the Herd. He must now prove himself by passing The Seven Tests (Mitihani Saba) so that he can become Accepted as a young male. Mpole's problem, however, is that he does things gradually...and that includes thinking. How can he possibly succeed?

Mpole is a 12 year old African elephant who has been forced to leave the Herd. He must now prove himself by passing The Seven Tests (Mitihani Saba) so that he can become Accepted as a young male. Mpole's problem, however, is that he does things gradually...and that includes thinking. How can he possibly succeed? With the help of Sheena, perhaps - the clever (and cheeky) little black and white cat who has sneaked back to Baragandiri National Park with the Allen family on their second safari there. But a test much bigger than Mitihani Saba awaits them...

Teaching resources

 

A set of free, downloadable teaching resources (structured in line with the UK National Literacy Strategies but designed to help all 7-12 year old readers explore the text fully, and deepen their enjoyment of it) is available in the Paka Mdogo section of the LitWorks.com website. Go to http://www.litworks.com/childrens.php.

The resources are designed to be used on a page-by-page basis, and are wholly flexible, so that they can be employed in a variety of ways and settings:

· Students reading the book independently can be directed to the study tasks most appropriate to their level of language skill, as a way of supplementing what they have taken from the reading process itself.

· Teachers will be able to use the study tasks to focus attention on reading and comprehension, language awareness, thinking skills, individual writing (both creative and expository), open discussion, dramatic presentation, and simple literary judgement.

· Parents who wish to assist their children with reading and language development will find much in the resources to help them do that.
