The English curriculum is built around three interrelated strands of Language, Literature and Literacy. Combined, these strands focus on developing students’ knowledge and understanding of a number of skills including listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. Students learn to interact with their peers, teachers, individuals, groups and community members by engaging with a range of face-to-face and online environments. Local community, regional and global contexts, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives are integrated effectively into each unit to heighten student understanding. Students are subsequently provided with opportunities to develop their understanding of how texts are influenced by context, purpose and audience.
