Reading skills: Unseen fiction - Cold Mountain

Lesson outcome

In this lesson, we will learn about the background of our next text, which is an extract from 'Cold Mountain', written by Charles Frazier. We will look at the historical contexts as well as finding out about our main characters before examining the exposition of the novel. Whilst reading the extract, we will continue to consolidate our reading strategies. You will be provided with prompt questions to help you track your way through the text systematically, thinking about what happens - first / next / then and finally.
