Close analysis of language: Touching the Void – Joe Simpson
In this lesson, we will be following our process for analysing a writer’s language use by examining a passage from Joe Simpson’s Touching the Void in more detail. 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.
