GENRE: DRAMA/PLAYS Drama/plays are stories written in such a way that it can be acted out for an audience. It is usually structured into acts and scenes. An act is a large division in the action of a play and a scene is a smaller division of action within an act.
COMPREHENSION SKILL DRAW CONCLUSIONS Drawing conclusions means making decisions, judgments or inferences about what we read. If I were in the school cafeteria and I could smell bread, tomatoes, and cheese, what conclusion might I draw? The school is serving pizza for lunch.
COMPREHENSION STRATEGY: QUESTIONING Active readers ask and answer questions before, during and after reading. When you ask a literal question, the answer can be found in the text. An interpretive question is answered by using other information in the text to figure out an answer on your own. An evaluative question is answered by making a judgment. You will go beyond the text to answer the questions.
COMPREHENSION REVIEW: CAUSE AND EFFECT An effect is something that happens. A cause explains why it happens. Writing may include clue words such as because, in order to, so, and as a result to link causes and effects. If these words are missing, readers need to think about cause- and-effect relationships on their own.
