Functional Formats are a form of Informational Text, with a clear functional purpose. Included in this genre are flyers, recipes, advertisements, emails, letters, brochures, memos, lists, etc. While high-stakes testing often includes this genre, finding quality text and materials for teaching and learning can be difficult. And, since many functional formats have limited words, it might seem like an easy task to read and comprehend the text, however, many students need explicit instruction in this area. Providing scaffolded opportunities to explore this genre will help deepen comprehension.
