SmartCard- Informational Texts
Dr. Rick DuVall (All Grades)
Finding good informational texts isn’t difficult. But getting students to read, understand, evaluate and apply what they’re reading can be a challenge. That’s where this SmartCard comes in. This SmartCard provides strategies to engage students before, during, and after reading. From making predictions about the reading beforehand to reflecting on the reading afterwards, your students will be more interested in what they read and they’ll comprehend it much better, too. You’ll also find information to help you teach students about the structure of different types of texts as well as how to identify and use print features, organisational aids and graphic aids. Each text feature is succinctly described along with an interactive activity idea to cement understanding of each text feature. Make the most of using informational texts of all types across all academic subject areas!
