Understand how texts are made cohesive through the use of linking devices including pronoun reference and text connectives

Elaborations

  • knowing how authors construct texts that are cohesive and coherent through the use of: pronouns that link to something previously mentioned; determiners (for example ‘this’, ‘that’, ‘these’, ‘those’, ‘the’,); text connectives that create links between sentences (for example ‘however’, ‘therefore’, ‘nevertheless’, ‘in addition’, ‘by contrast’, ‘in summary’) (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • identifying how participants are tracked through a text by, for example, using pronouns to refer back to noun groups/phrases (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • describing how text connectives link sections of a text providing sequences through time, for example ‘firstly’, ‘then’, ‘next’, and ‘finally’ (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
