In the 21st century, students are much more reliant on reading and viewing as a dynamic relational experience merging text and image (static and moving). The internet, mobile communication devices, electronic games and broadcast media bombard us everyday with texts and images, communicating and persuading us with new and creative languages and literacies.
This comprehension resource adopts a learning model based on (1) developing knowledge of reading and viewing genres, (2) utilising the readers’ prior knowledge, (3) discovering and exploring information about both text and image, and (4) using context to assist recognition of words, images, symbols and meaning.
The texts and the images employed by the resource are related to well known ACTF productions such as Round the Twist, I Think, My Place, Noah & Saskia, Lockie Leonard, among others.
The resource uses collaborative and fun approaches incorporating discussion, inferring, questioning, analysing and evaluating, creating, and synthesising information.
