non-fiction texts- make a LIST

LIST stands for:

  • Language
  • Information
  • Style
  • Tone


  • Is the language persuasive, informative, descriptive, childish or adult?
  • Is the language emotive?
  • Does it make you feel angry or sad?
  • Does the writer address you directly?


Is the information in the document factual, a series of the writer’s opinions, or a mixture of the two?


  • Is the document long and wordy with few pictures?
  • Is it written in short paragraphs with lots of pictures?
  • Is it written in bullet points?
  • Is it interesting or eye-catching to look at?
  • Is it a leaflet?


This is linked to language. Imagine how you would read this document aloud. Do you need a serious, humorous, sad or angry tone of voice?
