Reading skills: Unseen fiction – Cold Mountain
In this lesson, we will start with a quick quiz. We’ll then be finding out a little bit about the background of our next text, which is an extract from Cold Mountain, written by Charles Frazier. We will look at the historical contexts as well as finding out about our main characters before examining the exposition of the novel. 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, thinking about what happens – first / next / then and finally. Feedback will be given at each stage. At the close of the lesson, we will follow our routine of reflecting and considering any ‘big picture’ interpretations by applying the 4 narrative conflicts to your reading. A learning recap quiz will then be available to consolidate today’s learning content.
