Comparing perspectives and methods - Writing it up - Ondaatje and Bird

In this lesson, we will complete our learning on comparing writers’ perspectives and methods by using our plan to write up a final response. We will use a writing frame to help organise our ideas and support our writing. You will then be able to assess your response by comparing it to a model answer. As usual, there will be a final quiz to recap on our learning.
