Compare texts in a variety of contexts, mediums and modes by:
explaining the relationship between purpose and context
evaluating similarities and differences between hybrid texts, for example, infotainment, product placement in movies, hypertext fiction.
Investigate the representation of ideas, attitudes and voices in texts including:
evaluating the effects of rhetorical devices, for example, emphasis, emotive language and imagery in the construction of argument
analysing the effects of using multimodal and digital conventions such as navigation, sound and image
analysing how attitude and mood are created, for example, through the use of humour in satire and parody.
Analyse and evaluate how and why responses to texts vary through:
the impact of language and structural choices on shaping own and others’ perspectives
the ways ideas, attitudes and voices are represented, for example, how events are reported differently in the media
the interplay between imaginative, persuasive and interpretive techniques, for example, how anecdotes are used in speeches to amuse, inform or influence, or the use of characteristation in advertising
analysing changing responses to texts over time and in different cultural contexts.
Create a range of texts:
using imaginative, interpretive and persuasive elements for different purposes, contexts and audiences
selecting and applying appropriate textual evidence to support arguments
using strategies for planning, drafting, editing and proofreading
