Description

The Nonfiction Structures Guide is a tool that students can use to help them understand how writers organize the information within a text. Knowing the elements of text structure is essential to understanding nonfiction.

Direct instruction of nonfiction text structures helps students understand that a text might present a main idea and details; a cause and then its effects; and/or different views of a topic. Teaching students to recognize common text structures can help students monitor their comprehension.
