Developing a personal response

In this lesson, we will be looking at how to develop our personal response to an evaluative question. We will start with a planning tool to help us unpick the question and explore our ideas. We will then sequence our material before undertaking a slow write response, working systematically through our plan together. At the end of the lesson, there will be a quiz to recap on our learning.
