This resource asks students to read short passages and determine what text structure it demonstrates.
TWO VARIATIONS ARE INCLUDED:
1. Students must justify their opinion using the OREO writing strategy in which they state their opinion, give a reason, explain with evidence from the passage, and then restate their opinion once more.
Sample Response: I believe this passage shows a cause and effect text structure. I think this because ..... In the text it states, "..." This shows why this is a cause and effect passage.
2. WITHOUT OREO STRUCTURE: Students must read each passage and write an explanation to describe which text structure is used.
