Nowadays people are juggling a variety of media platforms including tablets, mobile phones, laptops and consuming, connecting, collaborating and creating content as never before. The internet has enabled the role and relationship between author and audience to become blurred (Jenkins 2006) leading to a new form of narrative that is native to the Internet (Rose, 2012).
An excellent resource, Suggested texts for the English K–10 Syllabus, is now available on the Board’s website.
Suggested texts for the English K–10 Syllabus is a compilation of quality reading and viewing for students in Kindergarten to Year 10. It combines the classics and successful teaching texts with innovative recent works. It includes fiction as well as nonfiction, poetry, drama, film, media and multimedia texts.
The listed texts are suitable for Kindergarten to Year 10 but are not prescribed for study, allowing schools to select the most appropriate material for their students. These lists include texts that teachers can use to implement the new syllabus. Text requirements for K–6 and 7–10 classrooms are found in Content and Text Requirements in the English K–10 Syllabus. To assist teachers, texts are mapped against the syllabus text requirements.
Chief Executive of the Board of Studies, Carol Taylor, recently visited Russell Lea Infants School, Five Dock to launch the Suggested texts for the English K–10 Syllabus. In developing the list of texts, the need to provide teachers with a range of choice was an important consideration. The result is a variety of genres, perspectives and themes with good representation of Australian and international authors, the classics, poetry and plays as well as films, picture books, graphic novels, media and multimedia texts.
