Description

English for the Australian Curriculum Book 2 draws on a wide variety of contemporary textual modes to encourage students to explore what texts tell us about ourselves, our place in the world, and how we communicate and interact with others. A student focused text, English for the Australian Curriculum Book 2 privileges student experience, creative engagement with texts, moments of reflection and opportunities for deep thinking. Drawing on an inquiry model of learning, it provides opportunities for students to write and create their own texts, as they develop their knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of a host of literary and non-literary text forms.show more
