Structure and Language in a Non-Fiction Text

(0)
Lesson comes from a dystopian scheme of work. Students will be required to analyse the way in which an author of a non-fiction text structured their text. They will also be expected to identify and evaluate the most impactful technique used by the author. This leads to the students writing their own articles, using the techniques analysed, which serves as propaganda for a dystopian government. Connections are made with the real world through the use of an article about Donald Trump.
