Stage 1 | Subject outline | Content | Intertextual study
Students reflect on their understanding of intertextuality by:
- analysing the relationships between texts, or
- demonstrating how their knowledge of other texts has influenced the creation of their own texts.
When analysing or creating texts to show their understanding of intertextuality, students may also consider:
- intertextual references within texts (texts that make explicit or implied references to other texts)
- ways in which they, as readers, make intertextual connections based on their previous experiences of texts or their own experiences and beliefs.
Potential areas of study could include:
- two or more texts by the same author
- two or more examples of the text type (e.g. two film trailers or three editorials)
- a text type and a mode of communication covering the same topic
- different text types about a similar idea, designed to meet the needs of a particular audience
- a text that is based on or makes reference to other texts
- hybrid texts, such as infotainment or product placement in film.
