Other Work Samples for:

Chris has demonstrated elementary knowledge and understanding of the selected novel and a very limited level of competence in oral presentation skills. Events from the novel have been listed and an opinion has been provided but the presentation lacks structure and the ideas are confusing and difficult to follow. Very limited information about the setting, characters and plot has been provided, and the term ‘boring’ has been overused. Chris has used conversational language and the expression is unclear at times. More appropriate pacing and greater depth of information would be of benefit. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade E standard at the end of Stage 3.

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.
