Outcome 2: A student uses a range of processes for responding to and composing texts. A student uses and describes language forms and features, and structures of texts appropriate to different purposes, audiences and contexts.(4.8: in visual texts: medium, organisation, colour, layout, perspective, focus, camera angles and editing) Outcome 6: A student draws on experience, information and ideas to imaginatively and interpretively respond to and compose texts. Outcome 8: A student makes connections between and among texts. Outcome 9: A student demonstrates understanding that texts express views of their broadening world and their relationships within it. (9.10: narrative techniques in film-making and in the media, including their use in news and current affairs reporting and 9.11: film and media techniques used in representing people, places and events.)
