Analysing language: Analytical writing

In this lesson, we will focus on developing a clear strategy to transform our selected evidence from 'The Tiredness of Rosabel' into an effective piece of analytical writing. We will do this together: working through the steps using a slow writing model. This will give you chance to secure these steps in your mind for your own independent work in the future. At the end of the lesson we'll look at a sample response for you to use as a benchmark to assess your own work.
