Now that I've started my unit on informational texts, I find my kiddos have no background knowledge. Also, reading informational texts can be boring, so they don't remember what they have read. This strategy is helpful to get them to remember what they have read, but I also touch on some things they need to know for this unit. I mention what informational texts are, how they are structured, and the author's purpose for writing them.
