Product Description
The focus of this unit is to develop students' ability to make inferences and determine an author's point of view in non fiction writing.
Students explore the world of travel writing, reflecting on and evaluating brochures, rough guides, newspaper reports and television clips. There is much group work and discussion, and an extended activity in which students form groups to make a presentation to either promote their home town, or to give a 'rough guide' presentation - warts and all!

The VLE homework unit offers three tasks that extend the map beyond travel writing, students reflecting on film, book, album and game reviews. In addition, they select a review to evaluate, and finally write their own reviews, using the techniques that they have studied in the unit.

Tailored peer assessment materials help students to evaluate their work and the work of others; the unit comes complete with full teachers' notes, and as always, are 'dyslexia friendly'.
