5 Why is it Important For Readers to Recognize and Understand Text Structures?

6 Ok, First Task Get ready to analyze the image on the next slide…  You will be given one minute to study the picture on the next slide.  Then you will have one minute to reproduce it.

7 Ok, Pencils Down…

8 Ready, Go!

9 Ready, Draw!

10 How Did You do?

15 How Did You Do?

16 Why was the second picture easier to draw?

17 What Does All This Have to do With Reading? Or Text Structures?

18 Let’s try something else --this time using numbers! You will be given one minute to memorize the number on the next slide.You will be given one minute to memorize the number on the next slide.

32 Warm-Up February 11, 2011 Use one of your leftover notecards to write a short note (approximately one paragraph) to a classmate explaining Text Structure. Choose one of the five structures we talked about yesterday and 1 – explain what it is 2 – identify which class they are most likely to find that structure

45 Compare-Contrast Although both cities have experienced great tragedies, Greensburg is very different from New York City. There are no tall skyscrapers in Greensburg. All you can see are fields and sky. Instead of taxicab horns and fire truck sirens, it is so quiet at night that you can hear the crickets chirping.

52 Problem-Solution For many years, Mrs. Jacobs wanted to grow a vegetable garden, but she did not have enough room for a garden. Her house sat on a small piece of land, just barely big enough for the house and porch. She collected empty plastic jugs, such as from milk and large containers of snack food. She put small holes in the bottom, filled them with dirt, and planted seeds. After weeks of watering, the plants started to grow. Now she has tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, and broccoli growing on her porch.
