PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Every textbook has a distinctive structure, and each of these fifteen to twenty-minute ready-to-use activities can help students learn how their textbook’s author(s) organize information and present it in meaningful ways:

1) a chart to identify important textbook features and determine how these features will be helpful when using the book;

2) an information-hierarchy triangle helping students analyze a portion of their textbooks to learn how the author categorizes and relates facts and concepts, and

3) a "target" graphic organizer activity guiding students through an examination of how colors, shapes, and the use of space direct readers' attentions.

Familiarizing students with their textbooks early in the school year pays big dividends in efficient use of time and improved understandings when completing future assignments and preparing for assessments.

All three activities are provided in pdf and modifiable Word versions in the zip archive.
