This is a unit of inquiry consisting of 12 learning sequences for year 5 in the English for the Australian Curriculum resource. Each learning sequence contains a series of resources, suggested activities to carry out with students and a post-activity reflection. This unit of work focuses on a hybrid text 'One Small Island' by Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch to explore the impact of human factors on the environment of Macquarie Island. Through an analysis of both literary and informational excerpts within this book, students will have the opportunity to craft texts that use persuasive writing techniques that address the different social purposes for writing.
