Each card features a short informational paragraph and a choice of five text structures. In addition, there are posters for each of the five structures, plus a poster for the features for each text structure type and another poster for the key words of each text structure. These cards and posters work well for all students whether they are English speakers or English Language Learner (ELL) students. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
