Textual features

This resource supports the teaching, learning and assessment of Standard Australian English through work programs based on the English Senior Syllabus 2010. It reinforces the intent of the senior syllabus, which is built on a framework of three interrelated dimensions — Dimensions 1, 2 and 3.

This resource focuses on Dimension 2 — Understanding and controlling textual features, providing guidance on building knowledge of the textual features of texts.

The four aspects of Understanding and controlling textual features (see below) provide purpose and context for engaging with texts, and exploring how meaning is created.

The information is descriptive rather than prescriptive, and schools can use and select according to the needs of their programs.
