Common Core Helping Students Master Text Structure –
We recently offered a webinar on text structure and how it can help you meet Common Core standards. It was so well received that we wanted to share the information and handout with everyone.
Our fearless leader, Julie Monetta, explained that there are six types of text structure. If you can help your students identify them and understand their purpose, they will be more successful readers, writers, and content consumers. The types of structure and their purpose are:
How can you help your students understand and remember these structures? How about a beach ball?
Julie and her colleagues devised a clever activity using a beach ball to demonstrate each structure. It’s easy, clever and will help students remember.
You can download the slides and handouts that explain this activity and the text structures. The handout also has examples of text and student notes.
