This unit develops older students' knowledge of the discursive, imaginative, and persuasive modes. Each section contains:

  • an explanation of the features of the mode,

  • examples of techniques characteristic of that mode

  • a final task where students write in the mode at length

Example discursive, imaginative, and persuasive, and mixed-mode texts provided, with numbered paragraphs and wide margins for ease of mark-up. Classes can work through these texts to identify where techniques of the mode have been used and the writer has established a unique and fluent writing voice.


This unit will engage senior students who want to develop a flexible and individual writing voice. Particularly useful for New South Wales HSC students doing Module C.
