Analyzing Text Structure

Good readers examine text features and text structure to learn how ideas are organized and supported in a text. Through this analysis, students ask questions about the text that lead them to deeper comprehension. As students learn about text structure, they begin to understand how to make similar choices in their own writing.

Literacy Standards In Action

Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
