Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Talking and Listening
    Students communicate effectively, using considered spoken language to entertain, inform and influence audiences for an increasing range of purposes. They work productively and independently, in pairs or groups to deliver effective oral presentations using various skills and strategies. Students listen attentively to gather specific information and ideas, recognising and exploring how spoken and written language differ, and how spoken language varies according to context. Students evaluate characteristic language features and organisational patterns of challenging spoken texts.
  • Reading
    Students independently read and view an extensive range of complex texts and visual images using a comprehensive range of skills and strategies. They respond to themes and issues within texts, recognise point of view and justify interpretations by referring to their own knowledge and experience. Students identify, critically analyse and respond to techniques used by writers to influence readers through language and grammar. They identify text structure of a range of complex texts and explore how grammatical features work to influence an audience's understanding of written, visual and multimedia texts.
