Australian Curriculum: English for Global people
The Australian Curriculum: English is built around the three interrelated strands of Language, Literature and Literacy. This unit of work integrates all three strands to explore language for interaction and expressing and developing ideas, literature through context and empathy, and literacy through the persuasive and participatory constructions of texts, including media texts.
