Categorising Texts Tips


  • Aim to write about three groupings with three texts in each.
  • Write in detail.
  • A standard size of handwriting should aim to write roughly 2 1/2 to 3 sides
  • Spend 15 minutes on planning and annotating and deciding which texts to group.
  • Spend 45 minutes writing up your answer.
  • You can use any area of language study to categorise them.
  • Best marks are given if you identify a group, discuss similarities BUT then discuss what makes them different - for example, all have the purpose to entertain but have different audiences.
  • Be tentative.
  • You can talk
