Text Structure and Organisation Teaching Resources

Based on the Australian Curriculum, Text structure and organisation in English requires students to understand the following:

  • Understand that texts can take many forms, can be very short (for example an exit sign) or quite long (for example an information book or a film) and that stories and informative texts have different purposes (ACELA1430)
  • Understand that some language in written texts is unlike everyday spoken language. (ACELA1431)
  • Understand that punctuation is a feature of written text different from letters; recognise how capital letters are used for names, and that capital letters and full stops signal the beginning and end of sentences. (ACELA1432)
  • Understand concepts about print and screen, including how books, film and simple digital texts work, and know some features of print, for example directionality. (ACELA1433)
