Comparing writers' perspectives and methods

In this lesson we will be comparing our unseen fiction texts and looking at how the two writers’ perspectives influence the way they write their accounts of being trapped. We will break down the task and first establish key similarities and differences in their attitudes. We will then use a planning frame to read extracts from the two texts and select our evidence. You will have an opportunity to write up your response using a framework to support your answer. At the end of the lesson, you can check your response against our success criteria and a model answer.
