Students in year 3 were given the challenge to write a funding proposal for scientific research into a disease as part of a science unit. In this work, students were able to see the role of the genre of persuasive writing across disciplines & to understand the importance of audience in writing. The layout & content of the funding proposal was structured by the teacher using a template that outlined to students the expectations & examples of good practice, focusing on: topic knowledge or content, text structure or organization, language features or style & writing process. This unit illustrated the way in which teachers across all disciplines are teachers of language.
