Readers who understand the informational text structures can approach informational texts with a plan for their reading. They'll begin to recognize the organizational patterns of informational texts and expect the information to unfold in certain ways. For example, students who can recognize a compare and contrast text structure will read to find comparison points and differences. Students who can recognize a problem-solution text structure will look for a problem, search for solutions offered, and evaluate the solutions based on information provided in the text.

The goal of this free resource is to help your students identify and understand nonfiction text structure.


**A digital version is also included for use with Google Classroom.**

With the digital version, you have the option to go 100% paperless.
