Plot the Course: Understanding Text Features and Structures in Non-Fiction Text (Part 1)
Presentation Date: 10/24/2018
Duration: 1 Hour
Whether reading an article, a graphic, a story, or a comic strip, understanding how text is organized is a lifelong skill that effective readers use to enhance their comprehension. This webinar focuses on non-fiction text structures and how to build these skills at different reading levels. As students advance to more rigorous reading materials, the text that they read becomes increasingly varied in style, vocabulary, text structure, purpose, and intended audience. Text features go hand-in-hand with comprehension. By understanding non-fiction text features, readers make better sense of what they are reading. This webinar will provide you with a handout with various activities and graphic organizers for teaching non-fiction text structures that you can use in your classroom immediately.
