Write/present/sign texts for a range of communicative contexts
PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD
Learners at this level write/present/sign texts with complex subject matter and a need for various levels of formality in language and construction. They select text type, subject matter and language to suit specific audiences, purposes and contexts. Writers/signers can use linguistic structures and features to influence readers/their audience. They draft, redraft and edit own writing/signing to meet the demands of a range of text-types. They use language appropriate to the socio-cultural, learning or workplace/technical environment as required. They explore presentation techniques as an alternative to writing/signing own texts.
Learners credited with this unit standard are able to:
Write/sign for a specified audience and purpose
Use language structures and features to produce coherent and cohesive texts for a wide range of contexts
Draft own writing/signing and edit to improve clarity and correctness
