Summarising ideas across two texts: Between a Rock and a Hard Place – Aron Ralston and Touching the Void – Joe Simpson
In this lesson, we will be considering what the skill of summary requires by working with our two non-fiction texts, Between a Rock and a Hard Place and Touching the Void. We will look at how we need to understand the focus of the question and select relevant supporting evidence to answer our question. Crucial in the skill of summary is the idea of synthesising information across the two texts and showing what we have understood / can infer. During the course of the lesson, we will break down the process and experiment with sentence stems to support our written responses.
