The questions that poultrymen face as they raise chickens from incubation to adult life are not easy to answer. Both farmers and merchants can become concerned when health problems such as coccidiosis arise any time after the egg stage to later life. Experts recommend that young chicks should have plenty of sunshine and nutritious food for healthy growth. Banties and geese should not share the same barnyard or even sleep in the same roost. They may be afraid of the dark.

LEARNING FOCUS

We are learning to understand how a person’s background influences what they take from a text

This is because authors often adjust texts to suit the

needs and expectations of their audience.

Evidence of success

  • Discuss differing viewpoints

Literacy coordinators july 27 th 2011 literacy numeracy week

Socio-cultural Context

  • Factors that have an impact on socio-cultural context in texts include the

  • Values, attitudes, beliefs and assumptions of the writer and the audience

  • Gender, ethnicity and status of writers

  • It is this aspect of context that teachers focus on when they talk about critical literacy.

Teachers need to plan learning experiences that

  • introduce students to the idea that writing can be used as a way of interacting with others to bring about social change

  • make links to local and wider community

  • expose students to text types

  • immerse students in a variety of media used to communicate ideas eg. blog, email, letter


Literacy coordinators july 27 th 2011 literacy numeracy week

  • What does Contextual Understanding look like in the classroom?

  • Activities based upon the deconstruction of every day, media or multimedia texts have provided successful introductions to contextual understanding

  • familiarisation (immersion)

  • prediction of text purpose

  • deconstruction (analysis)

  • reconstruction


Literacy coordinators july 27 th 2011 literacy numeracy week

Introducing Contextual Understanding in Writing through Shared Reading

Focus: to examine and discuss the writing decisions authors have made and why they make them.

This is because authors often adjust texts to suit the needs and expectations of their audience.

You will know you are successful when you reflect on your own writing decisions before, during and after writing.
