- Engaging personally with a text as it comes alive, making connections with students’ own experiences and those of the characters (ACELT1582, ACELT1596, ACELT1613);
- Responding to various techniques that authors use to make stories exciting, moving and absorbing, for example character development and plot tension (ACELT1605);
- Exploring how depictions of characters in print, sound and images reflect the contexts in which they were created (ACELT1587);
- Understanding meaning and emotions through listening and speaking, viewing and representing. (ACELA1787).
