To achieve the learning outcomes for the Text Study, students must demonstrate understanding of the structure and language of particular textual forms and identify the values, attitudes, and beliefs conveyed by these forms. The capacity and willingness of students to read critically and purposefully are highly valued.

Making Connections 

…is key to Critical Literacy

Studying one text in relation to another allows students to recognise that the same idea, experience, emotion, or opinion can be explored in different ways. By exploring ideas of intertextuality students can consider the choices made by authors and the interpretation made by readers.

Making Connections 

…is key to Critical Literacy

The influence of context on language and the way in which power, bias, and discrimination are embedded in language can be considered.

Making Connections 

…is key to the Text Response Criteria

Students’ performance in text response will be judged by the extent to which they demonstrate:  clarity in identifying the characteristics of different text types (e.g. FILM) and the ways in which those characteristics are used by authors;  depth of treatment in recognising the connection between their own ideas, experiences, beliefs, and values and those explored in the text

Wayne Sleep as the notable exception

Billy Elliot’s referencing of Wayne Sleep shows the efficacy of a notable exception in questioning unthinking gender stereotypes.
