Examining thoughts, feelings and perspective

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will complete the reading of our extract from 'Touching the Void' by Joe Simpson whilst considering the thoughts and feelings he presents. We will find out a little bit more about Joe Simpson and his companion Simon Yates so that we can establish the very particular perspective of this incident. Then, we will write our responses to the writer's attitude in the selected passage; this will allow us to draw together our learning. A model answer will be provided to assess progress.
