Writing and Responding: A Guide for Senior English Students is a user friendly guide which presents a wide range of texts and activities aimed at helping students in years 10-12 improve their writing skills.
This text has been devised and designed for students in all Australian states by taking into account the individual curriculum materials in each state as well as the future National Curriculum.
The opening chapter offers advice on general writing activities and a blueprint for writing success - a seven step plan - which can be used for writing in all genres.
Chapters which focus on literature cannot cover all texts studied in Australian schools, but they do define and explain the genre by providing orientation activities which introduce students to novels, plays, poetry and short stories. Texts used as examples have been chosen because of their variety, quality, literary merit and because they are studied widely in schools in many states.
In addition, each chapter culminates in one or more model essays developed from the plan through to the final product. These essays are annotated to help students understand the process of relevant and effective writing and assist them to work towards this outcome.
Writing and Responding: A Guide for Senior English Students has been written and compiled by an experienced Senior English teacher.
