qNon-fiction text structures organize information into comprehensible patterns. Knowing how to recognize and use these structures to navigate non-fiction text greatly improves students' understanding of what they read. Gail Saunders-Smith simplifies the process by providing teachers of grades 4-8 with: a€cways to teach each of the five non-fiction text structures: compare/contrast, cause/effect, sequence/procedure, question/answer, and exemplification; a€cengaging whole-class and small-group activities using written, verbal, image, three-dimensional, and technology responses; a€cstudy skills for locating, recording, and using information; a€ctools for assessing student understanding, and explanations of the text features that organize information within the text structures; and a€cmini-lessons for whole-class, small-group, and independent application of students' text structure knowledge. Examples, photographs, student samples, and graphic organizers support your teaching, and a bibliography of professional books and resources for locating leveled non-fiction texts make this a complete, ready-to-use guide for improving student comprehension.qNon-fiction text structures for better comprehension and response / Gail Saunders-Smith. p. cm.
