This English unit addresses the purpose, structure and language features of the biography text type.
It consists of 9 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.
The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.
While the learning experiences in this unit have been specifically aligned to the Year 6 Australian Curriculum, the content may be modified to suit other year levels.
An independent writing task and an oral presentation task, which may both be used for assessment purposes, are included in the unit.
Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to add to a learning portfolio. These can also be used to assess students’ understanding of the unit objectives.
