Analysing Narratives – Using the EALD Language and Literacy Levels – Staff Meeting 24th February 2016

Suggested order to explore texts:
 – foregrounding
 – noun groups
 – verbs
 – circumstances

NB: Decide on some benchmarks – to ensure consistency. Check with your year level colleagues that a Level 6 (for example) looks the same.

Refer to moderated evidence here (Narratives) and here (our Recounts from 2015).
