This is a template that can be used with any nonfiction or informational text that fits into your curriculum. It was designed to fit all of the Iowa Core Curriculum Grade 8 Informational Text objectives into one activity to be used numerous times. Once modeled, the students can complete independently as homework or seatwork while you are working with others. This also works as a terrific assessment tool. If you teach 6th or 7th grade reading, there are organizers for each of those grades that build up to this model.
