Stage 4 reading - Sequencing
Students will learn to sequence events in a range of texts. By the end of the activity students will connect contextual clues and grammatical elements to order ideas and events in imaginative and informative multimodal texts.
- EN4-1A: responds to and composes texts for understanding, interpretation, critical analysis, imaginative expression and pleasure
- EN4-2A: effectively uses a widening range of processes, skills, strategies and knowledge for responding to and composing texts in different media and technologies.
National Literacy Learning Progression
UnT9: identifies the main themes or concepts in complex texts by synthesising key ideas or information (comprehension); summarises the text identifying key details only (comprehension); selects reading/viewing strategies appropriate to reading purpose (e.g. scans text for evidence) (process); analyses language and visual features in texts using metalanguage (e.g. cohesion, interpretation, figurative) (vocabulary)
UnT10: reads and views complex or some highly complex texts (see Text complexity) (comprehension); applies and articulates criteria to evaluate the language structures and features for relevance to purpose and audience (comprehension)
UnT11: judiciously selects and synthesises evidence from multiple texts to support ideas and arguments (comprehension); analyses the cumulative impact of use of language features and vocabulary across texts (comprehension); strategically adjusts the processes of reading and viewing to build meaning according to the demands of tasks and texts (process)

Using vocabulary to sequence
Students use temporal and causal connectives and conjunctions to sequence events.
Students use temporal and causal connectives and conjunctions to verbally recount the events in advertisements.
Sequencing informative texts
Students highlight words in a text showing the order in which the events took place. Using these events, students write a sequence of sentences that use temporal and causal connectives and conjunctions.
