PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teaching the five major nonfiction text structures? Reinforcing proper paragraph structure? This money-saving bundle is for you! This set of instructional materials is designed to thoughtfully and deliberately teach students the features of and differences between the five major text structures.

Each text structure (cause and effect, compare and contrast, problem and solution, sequencing, and description) is taught using paragraph analysis and graphic organizing. Students read examples of each text structure, and create/complete graphic organizers to show how information is displayed in each text.

Answer keys are provided to show completed graphic organizers, but student pages are left intentionally blank. In my experience, student understanding significantly increases when students are asked to independently/collaboratively figure out which type of graphic organizer best fits with each text structure.

Writing assessments are included for each text structure. These carefully designed assessments allow students to select a topic from two given choices, and provide checklists for self-monitoring during the writing process.

This bundle includes task cards for each of the five major text structures. Task cards include a brief list of signal words for each structure, as well as an appropriate writing/discussion prompt. These can be used in multiple ways, but I enjoy using them throughout the year to review/refresh text structure skills.

Finally, this product includes a single-page reference sheet featuring signal words and phrases for all five text structures.

I have a lot of success with these materials each year, and I hope you'll have the same!

Note: Not only are these important skills for students to understand, but these skills have also been regularly featured on PARCC, AIR, and other state standardized assessments.
