What are Text Types?

Writing is done for a number of different purposes and for different audiences. These different forms of writing are often known as text types at school.

Factual texts inform, instruct or persuade by giving facts and information.

Literary texts entertain or elicit an emotional response by using language to create mental images. 

Students are often asked to present an assignment or project which may be one of these text types. The pagesin this libguide cover different text types, purposes and features that are used in Years 7-10. These pages may provide hints to help with your written task.

Always refer to the actual task requirements and remember the type of text used by a writer should suit the purpose and the audience.
