In this lesson, we’ll be looking at viewpoint or discursive writing. We'll be exploring a question that will build on our unseen non-fiction reading which gave us individuals who could be considered inspirational. We will be considering the statement: “People who save lives, or help improve the lives of others, are the true role models of today.” Today, we will examine a response to this statement and consider how it has been constructed.
