To retrieve information from a non-fiction text (Part 1)

In this lesson, we will identify sentences written in the third person and then write our own sentence. In the main part of the lesson, we will begin by looking at where we find information from (which sources). Then we will decide which form of note-taking would be the most appropriate when retrieving information from a non-fiction text. Next, we will begin the process of reading from a non-fiction text about Charles Darwin. We will read and make notes for three subheadings: introduction, early life and school life.
