KS3/4 English: The Guide Book and The Travelogue

mediumblue

Summary

In this programme, two travel writers explain the processes involved in researching and writing for different purposes and audiences.

Lonely Planet author Charlotte Hindle and travelogue writer Paul Gogerty both take a trip to Exmouth Market in London. Their location is the same but their texts will be remarkably different.

Charlotte will be writing a guide book entry whilst Paul will write a more literary, narrative driven piece. What will the writers look for whilst researching their location? How will the language in their final pieces differ?
