This research-based book is intended as a 'companion' or reference to enhance pre-service and practising teachers' knowledge about how literature is created. Offering practical insights, it supports teachers' understanding of the writer's craft related to the quality literary texts they read with their students. While the major emphasis is on the Literature strand and its sub-strands, the book takes the three strands of the Australian Curriculum: English as a starting point for the book's content and offers explanations, interpretations and examples for each strand.
