What Texts does the Common Core REQUIRE Students to Read? | Common Core and the Media Center | Scoop.it

I'm with Mr. Stuart on this one; the standards are vague with respect to text title selection.  This leaves the doors and windows WIDE open for teacher and student choice.  Nice!

Non-Fiction Text Structures!

Non-Fiction Text Structures! | Common Core and the Media Center | Scoop.it

Understanding non-fiction text structures is critical for “Reading to Learn” (i.e., reading for information). Students should be familiar with the five most common text structures and should be able to identify each structure using signal words and key features.

 

Understanding which text structure is used helps students monitor their understanding, while learning the specific content that is presented. These text structures need to be explicitly taught in the classroom.
