Writing at level 6 evokes emotional as well as intellectual responses from the reader. This is achieved by the use of carefully crafted wide range of stylistic and literary devices which are used effectively to support the reader throughout the text. A wide range of information is included; paragraphs which vary in length and structure have clear focus. Imaginative vocabulary is selected for shades of meanings and impact.
Length and structure of complex sentences are adapted to suit text type, audience and purpose.
A level 6 writer is a skilled writer.
