Presentation addresses all five text structures including, Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, Problem and Solution, Sequence/Order, and Description. In addition, your students will learn signal words and sentence stems, have access to (50) writing topic samples, and a formative assessment to check for comprehension. This is a perfect resource to use throughout the year or before any standardized writing exam.
