    Hey, I'm enrolling at sixth form in September and they've given us a small list of texts I'll have to collect in order to analyse and work with over the summer but I'm having trouble finding a few of them. If any of you guys know where I can find any of these types of texts, I'd really appreciate it if you could put a link.

    so, I'm looking for, and I'll just quote exactly from the sheet so we don't end up playing a bad game of Chinese whispers;

    A variety of different texts including:
    Different Purposes- Argue, persuade, inform, entertain, describe, review, instruct etc.

    Different audiences- young children, young adults, males, females, teenagers, parents, and families etc.

    Different modes- Spoken, written, multi-modal.

    Different times- Varying across the decades (eg. the 1950s) or periods (eg. Victorian)

    Different forms- Literature, article, letter, advert etc.

    I'll be looking for all of these myself but any content you guys could offer would be greatly appreciated.

    -thanks

    you can look at a text where someone is arguing to make the audience do something! it could be anything, e.g. a letter to inform about a charity or donation etc it could be anything really
    Different audiences- young children, young adults, males, females, teenagers, parents, and families etc.
    look at the text which targeted the audience e.g. you can look at the magazine which is targeted at adults or a text which is easy to read, plain english which is for children or young adults
    Different modes- Spoken, written, multi-modal.
    do some research on that, i just googled it and find loads of info
    Different times- Varying across the decades (eg. the 1950s) or periods (eg. Victorian)
    again, if you google, you'll find information about this
    Different forms- Literature, article, letter, advert etc.
    look at the leaflets, newspaper to gather the information you need
    in conclusion- you need to do research to gather the information :yep:
    :goodluck:
