Annotated student exemplars

How do I bring literacy and language learning into my teaching practice?

These five exemplars of student work have been annotated to show how teachers might identify features of literacy and language from student writing, and provide feedback within each subject area. Whilst the exemplars have been sourced from five different senior subjects, the identified features and responses may be relevant across other learning areas. The annotations are made under the headings of Structure, Audience and Purpose, Ideas and Information, Language, and Accuracy.
