The task exemplifies the writing demands of the English curriculum at level 1.
The students have been learning a variety of ways to inform others. The teacher used a shared reading of a factual text about pets to explore its structure and language features. Students made personal connections to the topic. They collaboratively identified the structure and language features of the text and discussed why particular words and phrases were used. Through shared reading and discussion of a text model, the students were supported to include the relevant features in their own writing. Their task was to write a factual text about a pet, using an appropriate structure and language features.
This is the student’s first draft, which she has undertaken largely by herself.* Features of the writing that demonstrate the standard are described below.
The following example illustrates the sorts of writing that teachers can expect of 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.
