Non-Fiction Text Structures!

Non-Fiction Text Structures! | Common Core | 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.

The Common Core places new emphasis on the importance of reading and analyzing complex nonfiction and informational texts. This has many English teachers feeling like their literature is under attack, but students fall in love with stories.

Media Literacy and Close Reading : A Common Medium for the Common Core | Literacy Solutions

Media Literacy and Close Reading : A Common Medium for the Common Core | Literacy Solutions | Common Core | Scoop.it

Media literacy is a combination of new learning theory and highly engaging methods of practical, hands-on application that use 21st century technologies to aid students in culling and using evidence to supports their ideas (Schiebe, 2004).

 

Links to media literacy and student research in state curriculum standards are ever-present (Kubey and Baker, 2000 in: Schiebe, 2004). Beginning with terms such as, “evaluate importance” “reliability” and “credibility of evidence” (New York State), and “comprehend, interpret and critique texts in every medium” (California), it continues into the Common Core Standards with “citing evidence” “textual evidence” “sufficiency of evidence” and “reasons and evidence”.  Media literacy as it works into student research is both an implied term, and an overt curriculum mandate.

 

Through Project Look Sharp (in: Schiebe, 2004), a “curriculum-driven” approach was used to examine and teach media literacy to K-12 teachers in order for them to turnkey it to their students. By looking at the messages and languages used in multimedia, traditional literacy was seen as the basic language through the visual cues, auditory messages and concise text across all media types. These were strong indicators that one basic language could be used to help students develop a core competency across all media types to support their conceptual understanding and overall reading of text.
