Reading skills: Samphire (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will finish reading Samphire, and tracking the events against the components of the Narrative Pyramid. Whilst reading the extract, we will continue to consolidate our reading strategies. You will be provided with prompt questions to help you track your way through the text systematically. Feedback will be given at each stage. At the close of the lesson, we will return to our focus of considering how Patrick O'Brian's narrative follows the Narrative Pyramid in our reflection task.
