Lesson overview: Approaches to reading unseen fiction texts

In this lesson, we will be looking at strategies for reading unseen fiction texts. We will be using Freytag’s Narrative Pyramid and the idea of ‘Four conflicts in Literature’ as ways of reading unseen fiction extracts. You will then have an opportunity to try out these ideas by applying this learning to an unseen fiction extract from Katherine Mansfield’s ‘The Tiredness of Rosabel’. You will be guided through the reading with prompt questions and after each section we will stop to review our ideas together.
