Evaluate the dynamic relationship between authors, texts, audiences and contexts including:
how literature reflects cultural change and difference
the ways in which the expectations and values of audiences shape perceptions of texts and their significance
how texts in different literary forms, mediums or traditions are the same or different
how interpretations of texts vary over time
the ways in which perspectives are conveyed through texts drawn from other times and cultures, and how these may be renewed for a contemporary Australian audience.
Evaluate and reflect on the ways in which literary texts can be interpreted including:
how ideas, values and assumptions are conveyed
how specific literary elements and forms shape meaning and influence responses, for example, mise-en-scène, enjambment, dramatic monologue and verse drama
how medium, form, language and wordplay contribute to interpretations of texts
exploring a range of critical interpretations.
Create analytical texts:
developing a creative, informed and sustained interpretation supported by close textual analysis
using appropriate linguistic, stylistic and critical terminology to evaluate and justify interpretations of texts
critically evaluating their own and others' justifications, evidence and points of view
experimenting with different modes, mediums and forms.
Create imaginative texts:
experimenting with elements of style and voice to achieve specific effects
manipulating literary conventions for different audiences and contexts
reflecting on the ways in which expectations and values of audiences shape the created text.
