Report genre

Reports are used to systematically organise and record factual information referring to the classification and description of things i.e.  Bees,  Life during World War One, Mount Everest. They should not be confused with the idea of a newspaper report which is in fact a recount text. All areas of the curriculum present opportunities for Report Writing to be explored.

See page below for frameworks, teaching strategies and samples of report writing.
