Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Text Structures: Name that Structure – Description Edition - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


For today’s lesson, the text that I am giving students uses the Description Text Structure. I want to mix up the order a bit so that students won’t rely on the order of their anchor chart to decide. Description is easy to identify once students see that the text revolves around one topic, idea, person, place, or thing. Once they understand that, it is easy to see the descriptive details that surround it and help to understand and visualize it better.
