Product Description
This lesson activity is based on Roald Dahl's brilliant and compelling short story "The Hitch-Hiker" (available online and in several collections). It raises students' awareness of how authors manipulate their readers' sympathies for different characters. It provides a supportive scaffold for students to write extended analytical answers in fullly structured paragraphs, based on evidence they will find in the text.

I have included comprehensive teacher notes in the handout, which guide the teacher through delivery of the lesson, with hints for concepts to emphasise and repeat, based on my experience with this exciting and effective activity.
