  1. understand the relationship between author, text, and context
  2. analyse how ideas, perspectives, and values are represented in texts and how they are received by audiences
  3. analyse and compare texts, through the identification of the structural, conventional, and language and stylistic features used by authors
  4. use evidence to develop, support, and justify a critical interpretation of a text
  5. develop analytical responses to texts by considering other interpretations
  6. create oral, written, and/or multimodal texts that experiment with stylistic features by using and adapting literary conventions
  7. express ideas in a range of modes to create texts that engage the reader, viewer, or listener.
