Exploring the writer’s perspective: Between a Rock and a Hard Place – Aron Ralston

In this lesson, we'll be looking at how to examine the writer’s perspective. We will be continuing to work with our text, Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Aron Ralston. We will look at how understanding Ralston’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 and key quotations, 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.
