US26624 Reading - Q and A Article


This task helps students achieve NZQA’s Unit Standard 26624 Read texts with understanding.  For this standard, students are required to read THREE text types.  This resource covers ONE of those – reading of a Q and A ‘article’ about the short film “405”


Here, students watch the short film “405”, then read a Q and A article in which the directors respond to viewers queries about the ‘bloopers’ they’ve spotted in the film.

  • The complete student workbook


The student workbook includes:

  • A coversheet for the assessment task
  • Clearly unpacked achievement criteria
  • Cues to show students when to stop and get teacher feedback
  • The text to be read for the assessment
  • Tables and templates, providing a structured and scaffolded approach
