Analysis of language

In this lesson, we'll be following our process for analysing a writer’s language use by examining the final part of our extract from Isabella Bird’s The Hawaiian Archipelago. As usual, we will ensure that we have selected ‘rich’ and connecting evidence that allows us to build our analysis before completing a slow write. We will then be checking our progress against our criteria and examining a model response.
