However, I also wanted to have an equally powerful system for pre-reading and annotating nonfiction and informational texts. That's where this resource was born! With the boggling variety of nonfiction and informational texts in mind, I designed a simple 4-step system to help students approach ANY nonfiction or informational text. Each step is designed to help students break down a text so it becomes less intimidating. These steps work to empower students to take ownership of a text. In addition, each step sets students up for quality annotations and close reading.
Because all my classes are different, the way I present these steps varies from group to group, so you have lots of options in this resource. All of these items are ready to print and use!
-use the blank notes page to set up lecture
-print and hand out the completed pages as review
-give students the bookmarks as a tool for annotation
-use the last and largest handout as an anchor chart
Pairs well with 30 Research and Informational Text Task Cards!
Use these tools to help students attack these texts:
