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


Scholastic News is a great resource for teaching Text Structures. At the beginning of the year, I collected money from each family and purchased a subscription for each student. We get a new edition every week and there are Common Core activities built in, as well as interesting articles that capture the students’ attention. I have found many uses for the Scholastic News and they will play an important role in the remainder of this unit.
