Aligned with the Australian Curriculum and the NSW English Syllabus, the "Student book recommendations" wall allows students to identify the effect of purpose and audience on spoken texts, distinguishes between different forms of English and identifies organisational patterns and features; plan, rehearse and deliver presentations incorporating learned content and taking into account the particular purposes and audiences; discuss how writers and composers of texts engage the interest of the reader or viewer; listen to and contribute to conversations and discussions to share information and ideas and negotiate in collaborative situations.
Additionally, this wall allows students to recognise how texts draw on a reader's or viewer's experience and knowledge to make meaning and enhance enjoyment; recognise how aspects of personal perspective influence responses to texts; draw connections between personal experiences and the worlds of texts, and share responses with others. Students can discuss personal choices of texts for enjoyment while others respond to a wide range of literature and analyse purpose and audience.
