Australian Curriculum: English for Seeking refuge — the journey
The Australian Curriculum: English is built around the three interrelated strands of Language, Literature and Literacy. This unit of work integrates all three strands. Students respond personally, critically and creatively to a range of factual and literary print and multimodal texts, focusing on the text types of narrative, literary recount and literary description.
Students will be provided opportunities through the activities to engage with aspects of the following Australian Curriculum: English content descriptions (ACE codes), and related NSW Syllabus outcomes (EN codes) for Stage 4.
