Comparing perspectives and methods - Writing it up - Ondaatje and Bird

Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. In this lesson, we will complete our learning on comparing writers' perspectives and methods by using our plan to write up a final response. We will continue to use 'Journey to the Source of the Nile' and 'The Bazaars of Baghdad'. We will use a writing frame to help organise our ideas and support our writing. You will then be able to assess your response by comparing it to a model answer.
