Australian Curriculum,
Assessment and Reporting
Authority Outcomes
Understand how authors often innovate
on text structures and play with
language features to achieve particular
aesthetic, humorous and persuasive
purposes and effects (ACELA1518)

Investigate how vocabulary choices,

including evaluative language can
express shades of meaning, feeling
and opinion (ACELA1525)

Identify and explain how choices in

language, for example modality,
emphasis, repetition and metaphor,
influence personal response to different
texts (ACELT1615)

Make connections between students

own experiences and those of
characters and events represented in
texts drawn from different historical,
social and cultural contexts

Experiment with text structures and

language features and their effects in
creating literary texts, for example,
using imagery, sentence variation,
metaphor and word choice

Compare texts including media texts

that represent ideas and events in
different ways, explaining the effects of
the different approaches (ACELY1708)

Analyse how text structures and

language features work together to
meet the purpose of a text
