Reading with the head
Next, let’s read an extract from a piece that uses information and scientific fact to add texture to the writing.
While you’re reading this extract of Sarah Gerard’s Binary Star, I’d like you to think about the head method: establishing authority by demonstrating knowledge and using facts. Make a note of any examples of the head method you notice in this piece or any lines that stand out.
Did you notice that in Binary Star, Sarah Gerard uses both the head and heart method by not only using facts and knowledge, but using revealing, honest details too? You can use both methods together to really give a piece impact!
