This fun unit is designed to last about a week and it has activities which will help students progress from understanding basic text structure features (comparing and contrasting, problem and solution, cause and effect and chronological order) to applying text structure in their writing.
The unit includes a text structure poster, 3 practice worksheets on identifying text structure which progressively get harder, 12 task cards for identifying text structure and 4 task cards used to apply text structure and write essays on specific topics with the appropriate text structure. It also includes a graphic organizer for each of the 4 types of text structures covered in this unit which students can use with task cards 13-16 to write their short essays.
The task cards are excellent literacy center activities, small group activities or individual practice activities.
