  1. Making the Unfamiliar-FAMILIAR Miss Lawrie’s Tips for SUCCESS

  2. What is it asking you to do? • Decide on the PURPOSEof the text • Analyse the IDEAS the text is PRESENTING • Analyse the LANGUAGE FEATURES of the text • Discuss the EFFECTS of the IDEAS and LANGUAGE FEATURES

  3. Miss Lawrie’s Tips • Manage your time carefully. The examination states that 60 mins is allocated for answering this Achievement standard. This means that you should spend approximately fifteen mins on each text. • Read the text 2 or 3 times!!! • Use the focus words that are in BOLD TYPE. This is one of the most important parts in answering the question. • Your answers must ALWAYS be clearly supported with evidence from the text you are referring to. • Have a look at all of the questions and answer the ones that you feel the MOST confident with FIRST.

  4. The four types of texts • Oral Language-might be a piece of speech, drama script, transcript of a conversation • Written Text (Prose)- might be a persuasive or journalistic piece of text. • Written Text (Poetic)- might include a poem or a descriptive prose. Poetic, expressive or imaginative writing. • Visual Text- might be a poster or an advertisement

  5. Describing Effects • There is no specific way to describe effects of techniques or language features. The main reason for this is that each text has particular characteristics of its own. This is why it is important that you learn to think about the text as a whole, and about the message it is designed to convey. An Example of a correct description: • “ The adjectives “uncool”, “extravagent” and “awkward, slimy and squishy” help us to see how uncomfortable the wearer felt in the coat. Also because “uncool” is a colloquial word often used by teenagers, we imagine that the wearer was a teenager,’
