Lesson overview: Analysing the writer's use of language

View in classroom

In this lesson, we will be looking more closely at a passage from Christopher Ondaatje’s Journey to the Source of the Nile and examining the writer’s methods. We will look at how to respond to an analysis question; we will identify the focus of the question, select relevant ‘rich’ evidence and think about the importance of linking our selections. We will then look at a writing frame to support us in writing up our ideas before checking our responses and assessing our progress against a model answer. At the end of the lesson there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.
