EXPLANATION CHECKLIST - Click on the Explanation Checklist to make sure that you are working towards achieving the LIs and SCs. You can use this for your self- and peer-assessment too. I've opened it for editing so... Save a copy and add it to a new page on your own blog and this will be where your digital version of your Text Form Diary will live! :-)
LINKS TO THE EXEMPLARS AND ACHIEVEMENT MATRICES
Transactional Writing Matrix - for Explanations
Surface Features - for all Text Forms
The Writer - Context and Process - Understandings about writing and the writing process - very helpful for you to know what you should be doing as an awesome writer. :-)
A GLOSSARY you might find useful. It has a lot of technical terms but you're very capable learners and teachers so have a look and challenge your thinking and learning. They are terms you will use later on at High School too. Think about adding it to your own blog.
