Having students identify the text structure of an expository text is difficult, so I have created different lessons that teach, model, and guide students on the different types of text structures you find in nonfiction texts. This Smartboard lesson incorporates what to look for in a problem and solution text. Notes are given how texts are set up, transition words listed that goes with each part of the problem and solution format (problem, evidence, possible solution, and results), and passages are given to model. A graphic organizer is also shown and used that accompanies finding problems and solutions in an expository text. Please check out my lessons using text structure.
