Considering the writer's perspective

In this lesson we will look at how understanding Ondaatje’s viewpoint helps us to make further observations about the attitudes and feelings communicated within the account. In order to help us do this we will work with a writing frame, building our response systematically. Once you have written your response there will be a model answer for you to self-assess against and track your progress. At the end of the lesson, there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.
