PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

After introducing expository / informational texts' purposes, author's organizations and text structures and features, I have my students create this Expository Poster over TWO self-selected texts. I usually complete this activity during the last half of my expository unit.

The FIRST poster is very guided and completed with a partner in class. Each group selects a Ranger Rick magazine article to read. (Any informational magazines/articles will work just as well though:)
Students are asked to analyze the text for genre, text features, author's purpose and new information learned. Students are also asked to illustrate their new information learned. This provides a great outlet for your talented artists to shine. Information is then compiled in the Diamond Four Square poster format I provide. While students are working, I am floating between groups offering LOTS for guidance.

The SECOND poster is assigned as an independent activity over a self-selected expository book with teacher approval. Make sure you have enough informational books either in your class or school library for each student to have their OWN book. I provide my students with 2 weeks to complete their independent Expository Poster. Depending on your class, this can be completed at school or as homework or a combination of both. This is a great opportunity to differentiate and require students to work at their individual reading level and interest.

Copy and distribute the 2 page handout to students. It provides step-by-step instructions for each section of the poster along with an example of the page layout.
I also included a scoring rubric for ease of grading. I placed 4 rubrics on one page so you could return score and any comments to students. I typically display the Expository Posters in the classroom or hallway. We enjoy learning about the variety of topics researched.
