Synthesising: Hurricane Irma

Over the last 2 weeks we have been synthesising from non-fiction and fiction texts. This week we are going to watch a video from Behind the News to synthesise from. Remember when we synthesise we add to our thinking or change our thoughts about a topic, character or storyline.

The video from Behind the News is based on Hurricane Irma.
