Reflection: Flexibility Comparing and Contrasting Text Structures in Informational Text - Section 4: NEXT STEPS

 

Students did a great job with comprehending the information in the speeches. Depending on the complexity level of the text, students worked through their readings while asking questions about aspects of the speeches that provided difficulty in its content. I chose to do this lesson with my gifted classes due to the complexity of the reading material. However, the video and other readings can easily be adopted in this lesson to emphasize text structure, meaning, and vocabulary.
