Effective strategies to plan ideas for writing will allow students to explore different ideas and sequence their writing.

Stage 4 ideas includes the following topics:

  • Differing perspectives
    Students need to understand that for all texts there are different perspectives and they are deliberately constructed to tell the audience what the author wants them to know.
  • Developing ideas
    Developing ideas requires the student to think deeply about a topic and analyse various aspects. Generating ideas and igniting creativity is vital before completing writing tasks. This requires students to develop and express an understanding through expanding what is meant by the idea.
