Reading unseen non-fiction texts: Between a Rock and a Hard Place – Aron Ralston
In this lesson, we’ll be starting to consider how we can use our reading strategies to respond to non-fiction material. We will be working with an extract from Aron Ralston’s autobiography, Between a Rock and a Hard Place. During the session, we will be tracking the events in our new text and asking key questions of the material by responding to a series of prompts to allow us to extend our thinking and observe some of the features that are particular to non-fiction material.
