Close analysis of writer’s methods - Between a Rock and a Hard Place – Aron Ralston

In this lesson, we will start with a quick quiz. We will continue to work with our text of the week, an extract from Aron Ralston’s autobiography Between a Rock and a Hard Place. We will start by considering what subject terminology is useful to know when approaching non-fiction texts. We’ll then be reminding ourselves of the process we have been using to select ‘rich’ evidence before using a slow writing method to create our analysis of a set passage. Finally, you will have an opportunity to assess your progress against our reading skills criteria and a model response.
