This file includes 6 graphic organizers for nonfiction texts. There is a generic main idea and details graphic organizer that can be used with almost any informative text. There are also 5 specific graphic organizers that can be used to teach text structure, including:
- All About/Description
- Time Order Sequence
- Cause and Effect
- Problem and Solution
- Compare and Contrast
These are great for interactive notebooks, reading journals, strategy groups or even assessments!
Also included is a text structure "cheat sheet" with the name, sample graphic organizer, and definition of each structure. A version without definitions is also included if you'd like to give students your own definitions or allow them to come up with them on their own.
