Description of Workshop

This practical guide will support teachers to develop a metalanguage that will make the expectations of analysis in curriculum contexts visible and attainable.  We will use a ‘top-down’ approach, beginning with the relationships at ‘whole text’ level we refer to as an analytical framework, and explore the middle level relationships within paragraphs, before looking at grammatical resources for creating analytical relationships within sentences and groups of words. The functional perspective we take on language allows us to make links to curriculum contexts in which texts are composed, including the overall purpose and the ways of expressing and developing ideas at the level of discourse and grammar. We will also draw on complementary descriptions of visual grammar (Kress & Van Leeuwen, 2006) to build a robust and accessible metalanguage ‘toolkit’ for teaching and learning.
