Plan and Structure Writing - 8 genre for Year 13

Plan and Structure Writing - 8 genre for Year 13


Purchase of this product provides you with a link to a Google Sheet that will enable your Year 13 students to plan and structure their writing for multiple tasks including:

  • Creative Writing – plot driven
  • Creative Writing – description
  • Argumentative Writing (essay, article)
  • Literary Essays 
  • Close Reading (think unfamiliar texts)
  • Close Viewing (ie of a film, but this could easily be tweaked if you wanted to focus on an oral text)
  • Connections across texts
  • Inquiry – an information log


Some of the sheets here are the same as those found in the equivalent year 12 resource, however others are quite different due to different requirements for the year levels. I found putting both year levels in the one resource was too confusing (I tried, I promise!), hence the separation. 


Each sheet basically provides students with a breathe-in-breathe-out fill in the gaps guide.  Note:

  • Comments are provided within many of the cells to provide help to students who need further explanation.
  • To move between sheets to find the template they need, students simply click on the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
  • The first rows and columns have been frozen on many of the sheets to allow students to scroll/work through the spreadsheet, spreading to infinity, while still having the headings remain visible.
  • These have been designed to scaffold students who struggle and extend more able students to think more critically.


A fantastic resource to last you and your students the whole year.  Please note, this resource has also been loaded under both English Subject Resources AND Level 3 Achievement Standards as it covers most of those standards!  Just in case you're confused though, it is the same resource.
