This Common Core reading lesson covers how to analyze the cause-and-effect structure in informational text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students identify signal words that indicate a cause-effect relationship, and then determine the cause and the effect. Finally, they analyze whether the text is single cause with single effect, single cause with multiple effects, or multiple causes with single effect. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of independent practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.
