Approaching unseen fiction texts
In this lesson, we will start with a quick quiz. Then, we will learn about the narrative pyramid and the ‘Four conflicts in Literature’ as ways of reading unseen fiction extracts. It is important that you read with precision so we will be exploring techniques to help you become more thoughtful and effective readers of new texts. You will then have an opportunity to try this out by applying the techniques to an extract from a short story: ‘The Tiredness of Rosabel,’ by Katherine Mansfield. You will be guided through the reading with prompt questions and given chance to try out and become confident in your new learning. At the end of the session there will be a learning recap quiz.
