The Rooftop

Chapter Reading Books

Ages 9+ (Stage 2)

The Rooftop

by Toby Hammerschlag At a Sydney school, friendship develops between four diverse students in the classroom and on the netball court. As they learn the story of the Ancient Israelites’ quest for freedom, they reveal their unique stories. Freedom takes on a new meaning when on the day of the netball finals, Maha and her family face deportation. Four friends, four very different stories. The Rooftop is set against a quintessential Sydney background. At Darlinghurst East Public School, Emma, Maha, Simon and Talia, learn about themselves and each other through the unusual combination of Scripture class and netball. As Mr. Zulman reveals the story of the Exodus to the students, they reveal their own stories to each other: Simons parents are separated and warring with each other. Talias dyslexia makes the classroom an everyday struggle. Mahas family is facing deportation back to war-torn Iraq, and, Emma, who has lived all her life in Sydney, begins for the first time to appreciate the value of freedom. Topics of bullying, family, religion, equality, freedom, religious freedom, social tolerance and prejudice are all mentioned. **Teacher Notes are available for this book https://www.woodslane.com.au/Resources

Book Review from Luke Great book for schools and teens (source www.booktopia.com.au) Good Selfie has been a fantastic resource to use in our High School setting for myself and fellow colleagues. Strengthening resilience and confidence within my students through goal setting, self talk and various self help strategies in my students has always been at the forefront of my wellbeing practice as a Year Adviser and using the extremely relevant scenarios and worksheets in 'Good Selfie' has assisted me greatly in delivering and working through these messages with students. I believe that the activities within the various chapters of 'Good Selfie' enable educators to begin to discuss and develop this skill within their students. The language, questions and tone of the book is fantastic for students as it is written at THEIR level and has been a highly engaging read for students I have used this with. Students love the various 'hashtags' and emojis used throughout as this is really where their headspace is in high school. Students have loved the various quotes and affirmations written throughout and we have used these around the school since the release of "Good Selfie' to continue the fantastic messages that the book communicates. 26.
