Plan and Structure Writing - 8 genre for Yr 10-11

Plan and Structure Writing - 8 genre for Yr 10-11


Purchase of this product provides you with a link to a Google Sheet that will enable your Year 10 and Year 11 students to plan and structure their writing for multiple tasks including:

⭐  Creative Writing – plot driven

⭐  Creative Writing – description

⭐  Argumentative Writing (essay, article)

⭐  Literary Essays – discussing one ‘thing’ (eg one character, one event) and discussing three ‘things’

⭐  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


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

❤️ Some of the templates provide examples

❤️ 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 1 Achievement Standards.  Just in case you're confused though, it is the same resource.



🖥️ Google sheets (so, completely editable)
