1 Glossary – key terms Text – an example of spoken or written language for analysis Classification – identifying types of items based on similarities Mode – the medium of communication (e.g. speech or writing) Genre - the category or type of text Context – when in time and physically is the text received Audience – who the text is designed for Purpose – the reason a text is produced Formality – the language patterns a text uses and whether theyre formal or informal How can we group, and problematize the groupings of, texts?

2 Key Question: How can we group, and problematize the groupings of, texts? Good: Understand how to create a group of texts and use some appropriate terminology to describe them. Better: Be able to explore similarities and differences in texts, using a range of appropriate terminology. Great: Understand what problematising grouping is and demonstrate this in a discussion of a group of texts.

3 In your groups share all the texts youve brought in and spread them out on the table. Make piles in which you group them in different ways – NO GROUPING BY GENRE!! Make notes in your books about which texts you grouped, and how you decided on the groupings. Each group to present one of their groupings to the class. How can we group, and problematize the groupings of, texts?

4 What can be problematic (but interesting) about grouping texts? Look at the Ovatline text. What are some of the interesting features of this text? How could you group it with some of the other texts you have? In what ways might it fit into more than one group? How can we group, and problematize the groupings of, texts?

6 How did we do? Good: Understand how to create a group of texts and use some appropriate terminology to describe them. Better: Be able to explore similarities and differences in texts, using a range of appropriate terminology. Great: Understand what problematising grouping is and demonstrate this in a discussion of a group of texts.

7 H/W Choose a grouping of at least three texts you want to write about. They could come from any weve looked at today. Make a note of the texts and the primary grouping feature. Explore the group of texts explaining why they are similar but also why it is not always straightforward to group them. Use as much of the new terminology as you can. Due Thursday.
