This learning sequence is specifically targeted at skill building and developing student confidence in regard to critically analysing and then writing a review. The teacher poses the question, ‘What makes a good review?’ and then uses a ‘gradual release of responsibility’ model to assist students in gaining a critical understanding of the features of review writing, including language, tone and structure.
The students in the class, for which the lesson sequence was developed, were from a diverse range of backgrounds. In developing, and scaffolding the learning activities within the sequence, the teacher structured the learning to enable students from a variety of backgrounds to grasp key English procedural and conceptual knowledge. The approach used by the teacher includes a range of text types.
