Textual Concepts

This progression of textual concepts gives members a clear development of the understandings explicitly stated in or implied by the English K-10 syllabus. Developed jointly by the ETA and the Department of Education, Textual Concepts explains the meanings of terms and charts the development of these terms from Early Stage One to Stage 5 to support teachers in 

  • guiding students towards higher order thinking through the core of the discipline of English and
  • concept-based programming. 

Give your students the benefit of this resource.
