This is a great way for your students to practice identifying text structure, its components, and the author's purpose.
The first set is of 12 small passages (about a paragraph in length) that are great for Literature Centers of morning work.
The second set is of 8 longer passages that are good for small group practice or homework.
This goes perfectly with my other text structure resources (student handouts, flipcharts, powerpoints). Check out my Text Structure Bundle to save on all my text structure resources!
