At this level, students produce texts that incorporate a range of ideas, information, beliefs or processes and have control of the language devices appropriate to the type of text. In reading, the student identifies the views shaping the text and the devices used to present that view and express an opinion on the effectiveness and content of the text.  At the end of the unit students will be able to read, comprehend and write a range of complex texts across a broad range of contexts.
