The Tupperware Party (Writing)

The task exemplifies the writing demands of the English curriculum at level 1.

The students have been writing independently about a personal experience. They have been learning how to use planning tools, such as oral recounting, brainstorming, listing and sequencing ideas, and using simple pictures.

This is the student’s first draft. Features of the writing that demonstrate the standard are described below.

The following example illustrates the sort of writing that teachers can expect from students who are meeting the standard. To meet the standard, students draw on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for writing described in the Literacy Learning Progressions for students at this level.
