This set of notes for nonfiction terms is set up Cornell, or 2-column, style. It includes 2 pages of teacher's notes (information has been completed) and 2 pages of scaffolded student's notes.
The following terms and concepts are covered: central or main idea, summary, compare, contrast, argument, evidence, assertion, citation, logic, fallacious reasoning, author's purpose, text features, headings, illustrations, captions, headline, direct quotation, table of contents, glossary, index, footnotes, primary source materials.
It also covers the following text structures: cause/effect, compare/contrast, description, problem/solution, and sequence.
The terms in these notes are consistent with my Nonfiction Dominoes and Nonfiction Jeopardy Game.
I have also included links to two free PowerPoint presentations that cover text features and text structure.
