The lesson includes 5 different types of text structures. The TN Ready standard is
(Analyze how a particular sentence, paragraph, chapter, or section fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the ideas. R.I. 6.5)
This is day 1 of text structures. This lesson includes information about description, problem solution, chronological order, compare/contrast, and cause/effect.
The lesson starts off with a group inquiry activity. The group worksheet is included. Students read a piece of informational text and decide together which type of text structure goes with the graphic organizer displayed on the board and give evidence from the text. Group roles are assigned. (worksheet is included)
Students have a notes page that they will take notes on. They also have a page where they will cut and paste examples for the lesson. My students loved this lesson today. They were so much more engaged when they were able to cut and paste information.
The lesson has a video from youtube. Link is included. Students are also able to generate their own questions throughout the lesson. There's an internal summary included and an exit ticket that is super creative.
