This flow chart is a wonderful resource for readers and writers. Beginning at #1 students identify a text they will read or want to write. Moving to #2 students determine what the purpose of the text is/will be. At #3 students determine if the text is/will be Fiction or Non-Fiction. Candy is the hook in #4. I use OREOs to teach persuasive form (opinion, reason, examples, opinion), M&M's to teach informative form (main idea=big M&M, supporting details=M&M minis), and SKITTLES to teach narrative form (using the rainbow:red=character/setting, orange=conflict, yellow=plot events, green=resolution, and purple=ending) I keep stock of these candies at the beginning of the year so students have a visual, sensory experience as they identify reading and writing in each form. Onto #5, students determine the format of the writing. The final step brings students back to TAP, reviewing the text, audience, and purpose of the text. Display this throughout the year,give students copies as a resource, print, cut, and laminate and use for a larger display. It can be used with any text. A great resource!
