Other Work Samples for:

Dale has demonstrated a sound understanding of the content and features of a literary recount. A title has been used and events have been included but the text lacks an orientation, time sequence and resolution. Some descriptive words have been used but the sentence beginnings are repetitive and there is inconsistent use of punctuation. An adequate range of spelling strategies has been used and there is evidence of self-correction. The handwriting is consistent in size and slope. To improve Dale needs to include all aspects of the text type, structure sentences carefully and incorporate connectives to join sentences and ideas. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade C standard midway through Stage 1.
