Textual Concepts

The English Textual Concepts™ website is now live and available to teachers. This progression of textual concepts and processes through which students learn them 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 NSW Department of Education, English Textual Concepts™ explains the meanings of concepts within a theoretical framework and charts the development of these 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 
  • developing understanding of these concepts for their students through the processes of English and
  • concept-based programming. 

Give your students the benefit of this resource.
