Australian Curriculum English – Language: Text structure and organisation, Foundation to Year 6, is a series of seven books written specifically to support the new national English curriculum.
These books contain a comprehensive range of resources to assist teachers in implementing the sub-strand of Text structure and organisation within the Language strand of English. All content descriptions of the sub-strand have been included. While each book focuses on this sub-strand, interrelated links to other strands of Literature and Literacy have been incorporated.
Each section of the book supports a specific content description of the sub-strand and follows a consistent format which includes the following information over a number of pages:
Teacher information, with an explanation of related terms from the content description
An explanation of what the content description means
Elaborations based on the content description
Activities to develop the content description
Blackline masters for students
Resource sheets including card games, reference charts and strategy suggestions
Interrelated English links for other strands
Table showing the language modes, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities covered in each content description
Answers for blackline master activities.
The number of pages in each content description of the sub-strand vary within each book, as do the number of pages of each book in different year levels.
Each book has these features below:
Teacher information includes background information relating to the content description, as well as related terms and desirable student vocabulary.
A table showing the language modes, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities covered by the activities in each content description is provided.
Student vocabulary includes words which the teacher would use, and expect the students to learn, understand and use, during English lessons.
Teaching points provides a list of the main teaching points relating to the content description.
Further resources by R.I.C. Publications® or other publishers or authors are included where appropriate.
Each section has a checklist which teachers may find useful as a place to keep a record of their observations on the activities to develop the content descriptions.
Interrelated English links lists other links covered within the Language strand, Literature strand and Literacy strand of English that are incorporated in the activities provided with the content description. While the book’s approach focuses on the Text structure and organisation sub-strand, the links show the integration across the three strands.
Related terms includes vocabulary associated with the content description. Many of these relate to the glossary in the back of the official Australian Curriculum English document; additional related terms may also have been added.
What this means provides a general explanation of the content description.
Elaborations are a list of elaborations based on those in the content description.
Assessment pages are included. Many of the questions on the assessment pages are in a format similar to that of the NAPLAN tests to familiarise students with the instructions and design of these tests.
Blackline masters are provided to support teaching and learning activities
