Functional Formats are a form of Informational Text, with a clear functional purpose. Recipes are included in this genre, along with flyers, 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.
Resource includes: Black-and-White Reproducible Recipe, Use Guide, Multiple Choice Test-Based Comprehension Questions, QAR Comprehension Quick-Check, Creative Writing Response, Word Study Sort and Recording Sheet, and ABC Order Activity. All answer sheets are included.
