This text structure project and comparison activity is great for RI.4.5, RI.5.5, RI.6.5, RI.7.5, and RI.8.5! It merges social studies with ELA standards beautifully, and your students will have fun with the challenge of creating writing pieces that inform about topics related to the formation of the United States.
Students will create writing about a topic related to the formation of our nation (post American Revolution and the formation of the Constitution), in a specific text structure. Students must be well-versed in informational text structures, as well as information about the formation of the United States to complete this project.
When students have written a sample of each structure, they then can compare their writing with a classmate's, discussing and analyzing the effect that each structure has on the author's message.
