Essential Questions What is functional text? How do we use details from functional text for a specific purpose? How do we locate specific information in functional text?
What is Functional Text? Functional text is used for everyday information. It helps you function in your day- to-day life. It’s text that explains or gives information. For example, if I wanted to bake a cheesecake, I would use a recipe. If I needed to put a new toy together, I would use the instruction manual. If I wanted to know what my teacher had planned today in class, I would read the schedule.
