Analyse and reflect on the relationships between authors, texts and contexts including:
the ways in which texts are influenced by other texts and by contexts
the relationship between conventions of genre, audience expectations, and interpretations of texts
how the choice and combinations of mode, medium and form transform texts
the ways in which informed reading influences interpretation of texts.
Compare and evaluate the form, language and content of literary texts including:
the ways in which texts resemble and refer to other texts, for example, through parody, imitation, appropriation and transformation, and the ways in which adaptations of earlier texts allow new insights into original texts
how aspects of literary texts have been appropriated into popular culture, for example, through the use of iconic literary situations, symbols or characters
the ways in which different literary forms may evolve, for example, the development of digital storytelling
the use of literary techniques, for example, poetic, dramatic and narrative structure and devices
the use of a combination of sound and visual devices in literary texts, for example, soundtracks, cinematography, iconography.
Create analytical texts:
organising points of view and arguments in different ways, for example, in essays, reviews and visual presentations
using appropriate linguistic, stylistic and critical terminology to compare and contrast texts
selecting appropriate argument and evidence to support points of view
experimenting with different modes, mediums and forms.
Create imaginative texts:
integrating real and imagined experiences by selecting and adapting particular aspects of texts to create new texts
using analysis of literary texts to inform imaginative response
transforming texts studied in one medium or genre to another for different audiences and purposes
reflecting on the significance and effects of variations to texts.
