This 'Text Structure Pack' includes the following:
~ Text Structure Clue Word
- Student List
~ Showdown Cards and Directions
~ Seven Student Handouts/Worksheets
- One for Description
- One for Cause and Effect
- One for Compare and Contrast
- One for Sequence
- One for Problem and Solution
- One Student Reading Passage and Review of Text Structures
- One Clue Word Match-Up
I enjoy using these when I begin introducing text structures. They are an excellent resource to help students begin recognizing clue words within texts. By recognizing clue words as they are reading, they are much more likely to correctly identify and name the passage's/paragraph's corresponding text structure. Additionally, the reading passage included in this pack can be used as a post test, after teaching the skill.
I hope you find them as useful in your classroom, as I find them in mine!
