Wandering GirlWhen Glenyse Ward was one year old, she was taken from her mother. She grew up at Wandering Brook Native Mission, in Western Australia. At the age of 16, she was sent to a wealthy farm, to work as a domestic servant. Glenyse's life as a 'dark servant' on the farm was hard and lonely. Luckily she had a strong spirit and a good sense of humour. This is the story of her adventures, as she met new challenges, made unexpected friends - and planned her escape to freedom. Book available at Perth & Balga Campus

Wandering Girl - Worksheet CoverThe cover you see is my easy-read adaptation, and the worksheets that go with this edition were written after talking to staff at SIDE – the School of Isolated and Distance Education, here in Western Australia. They were looking for self-paced materials that they could use with isolated Indigenous Australian learners (for some of whom, English is a second, third, or fourth language).
Getting Started & Chapter 1The following worksheets will suit adult learners! Wandering Girl is a great book to stimulate debate, personal writing and critical thinking – and in this case, language skills.
