PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Competence at this level will enable learners to discuss the style and purpose of the text, both implied and stated meanings, themes as well as plot, the author`s point of view and the context in which the text arose. They can use literature as a base to study and make judgements about human and social issues. They are aware of the drama and power of language.

As a creative representation of life and experience, literature raises important questions about the human condition, now and in the past. Learners` increasing ability to reflect on their experiences and to compare them with others` is encouraged, enhancing their capacity to deal with a selection of texts that explore moral, psychological and philosophical issues.

Learners credited with this unit standard can:
  • extract meaning from a variety of literary texts
  • identify and explain features that influence response to texts
  • produce texts in response to literary texts 

  • LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING

    UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS 
    Providers of learning towards this unit standard will need to meet the accreditation requirements of the GENFETQA.

    Moderation Option: The moderation requirements of the GENFETQA must be met in order to award credit to learners for this unit standard. 

    UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE 
    The following essential embedded knowledge will be assessed through assessment of the specific outcomes in terms of the stipulated assessment criteria:

    Learners can understand and explain that language, when used figuratively or for storytelling, can be used to create an illusion of reality. Learners apply their knowledge of language and literature features and conventions to an awareness of how fictional texts differ from factual ones.

    Candidates are unlikely to achieve all the specific outcomes, to the standards described in the assessment criteria, without knowledge of the stated embedded knowledge. This means that for the most part, the possession or lack of the knowledge can be directly inferred from the quality of the candidate`s performance. Where direct assessment of knowledge is required, assessment criteria have been included in the body of the unit standard. 


    Critical Cross-field Outcomes (CCFO): 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO IDENTIFYING 
    Identify and solve problems: using context to decode and make meaning individually and in groups in oral, reading and written activities. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO WORKING 
    Work effectively with others and in teams: using interactive speech in activities, discussion and research projects. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO ORGANISING 
    Organise and manage oneself and one`s activities responsibly and effectively through using language. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COLLECTING 
    Collect, analyse, organise and critically evaluate information: fundamental to the process of developing language capability across language applications and fields of study. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO COMMUNICATING 
    Communicate effectively using visual, mathematical and/or language skills: in formal and informal communications. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO SCIENCE 
    Use science and technology effectively and critically: using technology to access and present texts. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO DEMONSTRATING 
    Understand the world as a set of inter-related parts of a system: through using language to explore and express links, and exploring a global range of contexts and texts. 

    UNIT STANDARD CCFO CONTRIBUTING 
    Contribute to the full development of self by engaging with texts that stimulate awareness and development of life skills and the learning process. 

    UNIT STANDARD ASSESSOR CRITERIA 
    Assessors should keep the following general principles in mind when designing and conducting assessments against this unit standard:
  • focus the assessment activities on gathering evidence in terms of the main outcome expressed in the title to ensure assessment is integrated rather than fragmented. The goal is to declare the learner competent in terms of the title. Where assessment at title level is unmanageable, focus assessment around each specific outcome, or groups of specific outcomes
  • make sure evidence is gathered across the range as expressed under the title. Specific range statements under individual outcomes or assessment criteria are illustrations, from which Learning Programme developers can select. Assessment activities should be as close to the real performance as possible, and where simulations or role-plays are used, there should be supporting evidence to show the candidate is able to perform in the real situation
  • do not focus the assessment activities on each assessment criterion. Ensure that the assessment activities focus on outcomes and that sufficient evidence around all the assessment criteria is gathered
  • the assessment criteria provide the specifications against which assessment judgements should be made. In most cases, knowledge can be inferred from the quality of the performances, but in other cases, knowledge and understanding will have to be tested through questioning techniques. Where this is required, there will be assessment criteria to specify the standard required
  • the task of the assessor is to gather sufficient evidence, of the prescribed type and quality, as specified in this unit standard, that the candidate can achieve the outcomes in a number of different contexts. This means assessors will have to judge how many repeat performances are required before they believe the performance is reproducible
  • all assessments should be conducted in line with the following well-documented principles of assessment: appropriateness, fairness, manageability, integration into work or learning. Assessment should be valid, direct, authentic, sufficient, systematic, open and consistent.

    This information shows the current accreditations (i.e. those not past their accreditation end dates), and is the most complete record available to SAQA as of today. Some Primary or Delegated Quality Assurance Functionaries have a lag in their recording systems for provider accreditation, in turn leading to a lag in notifying SAQA of all the providers that they have accredited to offer qualifications and unit standards, as well as any extensions to accreditation end dates.
