Text features such as bold print, italics, maps, graphs, bullets, sidebars, etc. allow authors to bring attention to important details in nonfiction text. Help your students learn about these features and then lead them into learning about text structures.
Text structure refers to how information is organized in a passage.
Understanding which text structure is used helps students monitor their understanding, while learning the specific content that is presented. This PowerPoint includes:
- cause and effect
- compare and contrast
- problem and solution
- proposition and support
Print slides 4 and 6 for kids to glue into their interactive notebooks.
This PowerPoint makes it easy for you to explain text features as well as text structures and gives you examples as well as the graphic organizers you can use with each.
