Lesson Overview

Learn and Explore - Composition Skills 3

Looking at one text across the week in depth, topics and themes are further exploited by additional fiction and non-fiction texts.

Over the week, students will read in depth a piece of age appropriate literature to inspire debate, analysis and of course, practice of various PSLE text types, including non-narrative forms.

During each 4 hour lesson, learners will analyse language, draft and edit their own pieces with the support of the teacher. 8 different texts will be produced over 4 days. In the final lesson, the teacher will give individual feedback that will allow students to successfully write final versions. These will be added to their portfolio for later reference.
