Your exploration of English in free learning will now diverge into two main strands: Constructing texts and De-Constructing texts. In the construction stage we will learn how to get creative and write a range of different text types within both language and literature. There are SO MANY types of text we might be able to create: advertisements, speeches, text messages, emails, letters (formal and informal), news articles and opinion editorials all fall under the bracket of LANGUAGE-based texts. Literary texts include the three pillars of POETRY, DRAMA (plays) and NOVELS.

What is needed to run this unit?
Do not try and force this. What areas of other subjects might this reflect and/discuss language. For IB, links with ToK.
What was successful? What needs changing? Alternative Assessments and Lesson Ideas? What other Differentiation Ideas/Plans could be used?

I learned the difference between Literary and Language texts and which type of text falls into what category.
An accurate identification of various texts. Some interesting texts to have been selected which I enjoyed reading - some for the first time. Thank you.
