In this vignette, the year 10 teacher describes how she differentiates teaching and learning about an author’s use of evaluative language.
The teacher uses flexible grouping to provide targeted learning experiences about a common text.
The teacher leads an identified group of students through a series of questions to analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of sentence and clause structures the author used when crafting the text.
The teacher and a student detail how they develop, track and progress learning goals.
