This resource contains several resources for you to use to explicitly teach informational text structures to your students.
Here is what is included:
1. Posters for each text structure and a one page poster that covers all the text structures (Color and Black and White Versions)
2. Essential Questions
3. Graphic Organizers, INB Templates, and Printables
4. Two Sets of Passages: One introductory set and one more advanced
5. Text Structure Activities: Writing Activity and 32 Task Cards
About the Passages:
There are two sets of passages, one per text structure in each set.
Set 1: The first set includes one shorter, more focused paragraph per text structure. This set is best for introducing each text structure.
Set 2: The second set includes one multi-paragraph passage for each text structure. Each passage in the set has the same overall topic of pollution. This set is more advanced and perfect for small-group lessons and/or lessons that focus on comparing and contrasting text structure.
See the preview for more information.
