ACELA1508

Understand how noun groups/phrases and adjective groups/phrases can be expanded in a variety of ways to provide a fuller description of the person, place, thing or idea

Elaborations

  • learning how to expand a description by combining a related set of nouns and adjectives - ‘Two old brown cattle dogs sat on the ruined front veranda of the deserted house’ (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • observing how descriptive details can be built up around a noun or an adjective, forming a group/phrase (for example, ‘this very smelly cleaning cloth in the sink’ is a noun group/phrase and ‘as pretty as the flowers in May’ is an adjective group/phrase) (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
