Close analysis of writer's methods: Between a Rock and a Hard Place - Aron Ralston

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will continue to work with our text of the week, an extract from Aron Ralston's autobiography 'Between a Rock and a Hard Place'. We will start by considering what subject terminology is useful to know when approaching non-fiction texts. We'll then be reminding ourselves of the process we have been using to select 'rich' evidence before using a slow writing method to create our analysis of a set passage. Finally, we will assess our progress against our reading skills criteria and a model response.
