  2. Literacy Elements Gradual Release of Responsibility Breakthrough Framework Text Categories Text Types Deconstruction and Reconstruction of Texts Writing in a Multimodal World Session Outline

  3. LITERACY ELEMENTS SPEAKING & LISTENING OBSERVATION & ASSESSMENT • Write Aloud • Shared Writing • Guided Writing • Independent Writing • Read Aloud • Shared Reading • Guided Reading • Independent Reading

  4. GRADUAL RELEASE OF RESPONSIBILITY Role of the teacher MODELLING The teacher demonstrates and explains the literacy focus being taught. This is achieved by thinking aloud the mental processes and modelling the reading, writing, speaking and listening SHARING The teacher continues to demonstrate the literacy focus, encouraging students to contribute ideas and information GUIDING The teacher provides scaffolds for students to use the literacy focus. Teacher provides feedback APPLYING The teacher offers support and encouragement when necessary The student works independently to apply the use of literacy focus DEGREE OF CONTROL Students work with help from the teacher and peers to practise the use of the literacy focus Students contribute ideas and begin to practise the use of the literacy focus in whole class situations 4 The student participates by actively attending to the demonstrations Pearson & Gallagher Role of the student

  5. ‘Breakthrough Framework’

  6. Text Categories Texts are grouped and defined in particularcategories. It is important to note that any such classifications are arbitrary and that there is always likely to be overlapbetween ways of grouping texts and definingtext types. LITERARY TEXTSCategories of TextsFACTUAL TEXTS The categories of texts indicated above can be further subdivided into different Text Types.

  7. Text Type Quiz TASK 1: In your envelope are the 9 key Text Types, their Purposes, their Structures and their Language Features. You Will Need: Text Type template (insert colour you have used) TEXT TYPE quiz envelope contents In pairs put the grid together. Check against the completed grid (Hand Out) – Text Type Grid

  8. The 9 Key Text Types Description (factual or literary)*This text type is often embedded within other texts Report (factual) Recount (factual or literary) Narrative (literary) Procedure (factual) Explanation (factual or literary) Exposition (factual) Discussion (factual) Response (factualor literary) Page number8

  9. Text Types - Described These are the texts that need to be explicitly taught and are crucial to students learning. They provide the basic entry point for student learning and access to effective participation in the community.

  10. Text Types - Description Continued They are idealised for teaching purposes. In real life we find ‘mixed texts’. Examples of ‘mixed texts’ (hybrids) are: An ‘Information Report’ may contain an ‘Explanation’ A ‘Narrative’ may contain ‘Descriptions’ of people places and events. A scientific ‘Procedure’ may conclude with an ‘Explanation’ of a scientific principle.

  11. Hybrid Text - Example Information Report Explanation Procedure Science World 7 Macmillan 3rd Edition.

  12. Text Types as Starting Points When students understand that: Different types of texts exist Texts have different purposes Texts have particular structures Texts have characteristic language featuresincluding particular grammatical patternsand Texts have particular language conventions (spelling, punctuation, font variations and page layout), they are in a better position to manipulate and combine different TextTypes in purposeful ways for a particular audience. We see this daily in different text formats.

  13. Text Formats or Forms for Real Purposes There are 8 key ‘Purposes for Writing’ To: Entertain Recount Socialise Inquire Describe Persuade Explain Instruct Reference: Annandale K (Hand Out) - ‘Text Forms’ table - based on Purposes

  14. Teaching Text Types What do they provide? Text Types provide links to literacy development as a social practice. Text Types provide for the literacy development across and within: Domains and Dimensions, VCE, VCAL and VET subjects Text Types provide students with shared understandings about how to effectively communicate in each area of study.

  15. What should our focus be? We need to focus on those that are most relevant to the content of the program. We need to focus on those suggested in the Focus Statements in VELS and VCE subjects. We need to explicitly teach and reteach particular text types and adapt formats to match the nature and level of content deemed as essential learning.

  16. What should our focus be? Continued Data driven teaching using classroom sources of information. Responding to assessment through observations, conversations and previous products created. Data gathered from teachers moderatingtogether. Data driven using external sources of information e.g. English Online (Prep to Year 2) On Demand Testing (Linear and Adaptive) and NAPLAN (Years 3,5,7 & 9).

  17. Text Types To learn about texts we need to have a working knowledge of each under the following headings.

  18. Predicting From Text Beginnings The heart is the most important organ of the circulatory system. It allows oxygenated blood to be pumped around the body. The heart has parts. Report Last week Dad took me to the football to watch my favourite team. Factual Recount The wolf crept out from behind the tree, crouched low and was ready to pounce. The children would fall into the trap just like the others had. Narrative

  19. Predicting From Text Beginnings - continued The following is the instructions of how to set up your mobile phone. Procedure The ear provides audio information to the brain. It works by collecting the sounds in the outer ear. The sound vibration causes movement of the ear drum and the tiny bones connected to it. Explanation. There are many ways to overcome poor eyesight now and one way is to have eye surgery. Before a decision is made however patients need to consider many factors such as their state of health, cost and risks associated. Discussion

  20. Predicting From Text Beginnings - continued • Mobile phones should not be used while being served in a retail outlet. • Exposition • Billy is a teenage boy. He is of medium height with golden brown hair. • Description • The movie ‘Twilight’ a most compelling film and is set in deepest, darkest heart of America. It has romance, action and plot twists woven around the two central characters. • Response

  21. Modelling Text Types In order for students to be able to create and manipulate various texts types effectively, they must be able to deconstructidealised and hybrid examples . Deconstruction allows the students to familiarise themselves with the text before them and analyse its: Purpose, Structural / Organisational features , Language features and Conventions

  22. Deconstructing a Narrative Read the Narrative Hand Out ‘The Invasion’. 1 per person Source –

  23. Deconstructing a NARRATIVE SAMPLE TEXT The Invasion IDEAS AND INFORMATION Who the invaders – the mosquitoes, cockroaches and beetles What they moved through the city into gardens, on pavements, walls and they sucked the blood of people When on a hot steamy summer night Where in a city somewhere

  24. ORGANISATION /STRUCTURE ORIENTATION 1st paragraph sets time and setting COMPLICATION followed by a series of events 2nd paragraph The many legged invasion begins 3rd paragraph Describing the what the invaders did 4th paragraph Further description of what the invaders did e.g. suck human blood 5th paragraph Humans sleeping on unaware of the invasion CONCLUSION 6th paragraph Just another night of fun for the invaders

  25. LANGUAGE FEATURES WORD LEVEL Noun groups e.g. streets, houses, ceilings, walls, people, invaders Verbs e.g. quivered, entered, walked, asleep Adjectives e.g. many-legged Topic specific terminology e.g. cockroaches, beetles SENTENCE LEVEL Descriptive e.g. ‘climbed silently over carpets’ Entertaining e.g. ‘need to feed on blood’

  26. LANGUAGE FEATURES continued WHOLE TEXT LEVEL Figurative language (images created with clever use of language) e.g. ‘antennae quivered’, ‘feed on human blood’ Adjectival modifiers e.g. ‘totally’ unaware Prepositions e.g. ‘over’, ‘under’, ‘on’, ‘in’ and ‘into’ Past tense e.g. ‘It was’, ‘they took’, ‘were sound asleep’.

  27. CONVENTIONS OR MECHANICS Spelling– Topic words e.g. cockroaches, beetles, mosquitoes, antennae. Punctuation– Exclamation marks (double !!), commas, capitals, full stops, hyphenated word. Grammar– Past tense, adjectival modifiers, figurative language. Page layout– Heading, paragraph spacing, pictures Font variations– Larger text heading and BOLD

  28. Deconstruction Task INSTRUCTIONS Form a group of 8. TASK 2: Using the Text Type Pack (Hand Out) each person is to choose a sample Text Type other than the Narrative and using the Text Type template deconstruct the text. Complete as per the Narrative previously demonstrated. 20 min. Each person display your stimulus text, and deconstruction details. Sharing with your table. Discuss each in detail 20 min.

  29. Scaffolding Text Construction TASK 3: Form into groups of 3 Read the ‘Plasma Television’ article. Using the A3 Exposition Planning sheet and the Text Type Grid to guide your group, plan an argument foror againstthe issue. Compare arguments constructed that support or refute the thesis with the group.

  30. Modes of Text Delivery

  31. Writing in the Multimodal World How will you assist students writing in the ‘multimodal’ and ‘digital world’? What ‘modes’ of meaning comprise multimodal texts? Do we have the ‘metalanguage’ to talk competently about multimodal texts? Do we have the teaching and learning expertise to be able to assist students to write quality multimodal texts?

  32. Scaffolding Writing through the ‘Gradual Release of Responsibility’ Model Discussion: Using what you have learnt today how will you implement or strengthen the teaching and learning around ‘Text Types’ using the ‘Gradual Release of Responsibility’ model? Familiarising students with the text – How? Modelling – How? Sharing – How? Guiding – How? Independent – How?

  33. Writing as a learned Skill Something to ponder - Writing is a ‘learned’ skill and if anything goes in writing everything goes! Anon
