2. Present a text type

This second worksheet (or 'playlist') in this series of lessons asks expert groups to do a deep dive on their assigned text type: opinion piece, magazine cover, comic or website. Students study multiple texts before presenting a shout-out poster of their text type. 

Worksheet 2: Present a text type

Is there a definitive list of features that you have to memorise for each text type that may appear on the Paper 1 exam? While it's good to have experience analysing a range of (visual) non-literary texts, there is no exhaustive list of features that must be explored. Each text is unique! At the same time there are other, rather universal, purposes that texts serve, such as calling a reader to action. Focus on the writer's purpose and the important stylistic features will become more apparent.
