Practice - Bringing the language strategies together

You are going to read a text written by a student of Early Childhood Education. Excerpts only are presented here. The writer has used all the language strategies we have covered in this unit.

Print the text and use different markers in the suggested colours to identify each of the strategies the student uses in presenting her evidence:

  print page print
  neutral and evaluative verbs
  intensifiers and limiters
  concessive conjunctions
  passive forms
