Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO):
IDENTIFYING Identify and solve problems: use reading/signing and literary analysis skills to develop critically thinking for problem solving. Reflect on and explore a variety of strategies to learn more effectively: literary reading/signing skills include reading/signing for meaning and processing information, which are essential strategies for learning. WORKING Work effectively with others and in teams: through discussion, projects and exchange of opinions on literary texts. COLLECTING Collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information: studying literary texts promotes the development of these skills. COMMUNICATING Communicate effectively using visual, mathematical and/or language skills: engaging with literary texts improves general communication skills, as does interacting with others whilst discussing literary texts. SCIENCE Use science and technology effectively and critically: through using electronic media for learning and accessing information, and understanding the application of technology in literary performances, eg in stage productions. DEMONSTRATING Understand the world as a set of related systems: through using language to investigate and express links, and to explore a global range of contexts and texts. CONTRIBUTING Be culturally and aesthetically sensitive across a range of social contexts: reading literary texts enhances understanding and discussion of such issues, and promotes cultural and aesthetic appreciation and tolerance. Participate as responsible citizens in the life of local, national and global communities: reading skills enable people to participate effectively in such processes, and reading literary texts gives people wider perspectives on relevant issues.
