Considering structural choices

In this lesson, we will be looking at how to examine structural features. We will establish some key techniques writers use and the subject terminology you will need to help you explain your understanding of the text. We will return to our reading of our extract from The Time Machine by H G Wells and build on our reading strategy of breaking the text down into first / next / then / finally which is designed to help us move onto our structural analysis. Today, we will be working with a planning frame; we will break this down and look at how to complete this together. At the end of the lesson, there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.
