Learning objectives:- “Learners should be taught to recognise and understand the organisational features and typical language of instructional texts.”
These Resource Sheets are meant as teaching aids for this section to use in group activity sessions. It may be prudent to laminate them for repeated use. The resources in this section consist of 5 examples of every day texts the learners may need to read and understand. It is important for them to realise that they do not have to be able to read every single word to be able to get the gist of a piece of text and you should encourage them to use other clues where necessary. There are relevant worksheets for each Resource Sheet to test their individual understanding after group reading and discussion.
Learning objectives:- “Learners should recognise the different purposes of texts at this level.”
The Resource Sheets could be laminated and used for group reading activities. They contain a number of extracts of the same genre of text and are ideal for group discussion about where and when they may be encountered in everyday life. Each sheet is accompanied by a quick checklist of the kind of language and layout features that are often found in each genre. It is hoped this will be a useful tool for tutors to use as a starting point for discussion. Encourage the learners to make their own collection of text extracts, which illustrate the different purposes of texts. Not only will this add to their understanding of the different purposes of texts but it can also be a useful store of material for each learner to read to their fellow learners. Remember they are likely to feel more confident reading material they have chosen for themselves
