recount, information report, exposition and narrative bundle.
This bundle is a collection of five how to writing packs designed to assist with students understanding of the structure and features of a text type. It includes mini posters describing the structure and the features, arrows to label a model text, a text structure activity and an assessment rubric for pre and post assessment for each text type. In my classroom to use this product I print and laminate the posters and stick the how to writing to the bulletin board, whiteboard or join each page vertically to hang under each other from wires in my room.
We read a shared text identifying the structure and features. We deconstruct the text initially followed by students completing the jumbled structure activity in their exercise books, which can be used for later reference.
The text we read is laminated and displayed on the bulletin board or whiteboard with the arrows placed on the text to identify features. Students are encouraged to use this model when writing their own text.
I use the rubric to assess the pre test, which drives my teaching and the post test to show achievement.
