When the reader takes apart a story that they have read, looks at it through their own eyes and then puts it back together again, they take ownership for the information and the ideas.
Examples from our resources ask the reader to GRAPH the rising and falling tension in the story or the feelings of a character, to draw a STORY MAP plotting where the action has taken place and create a STORY WEB to identify the structure of the story.
NON FICTION TEXT
Non fiction text presents us with factual information or opinions. Analysing that information involves looking. Analysing that information involves looking more closely at the detail and the way it has been put together, organising it or reorganising it to show patterns, connections, cause and effect relationships and by so doing prepares the way for interpretation and evaluation.
