Personal response: Who has inspired you?

In this lesson, we will reflect on the three non-fiction texts we have read and consider who has inspired us the most: Ralston, Simpson or Bird. We will engage in an evaluative task before reviewing our candidates' stories and finally writing up our responses. The main priority today is to give a personal response, really reflecting on our feelings towards each of the individuals and the decisions they have made.
