In this unit, students will examine several aspects of comprehension and text analysis, including context, text structure, meaning, audience and register, and source. The unit allows students to read and respond to a broad range of text/media that deal with a common theme, to compare and contrast texts, and to discuss how they were constructed. The textual study will support students to explore a range of writing genres and to generate discussion of the thematic concepts in the text. In doing so, students will learn how to closely read text and make connections between the source materials using appropriate conventions. Students will develop their capability to write for specific purposes and audiences and understand writing as a process.
