Units and Lessons

Non-Fiction Text Structures Resources: 59

Big Ideas: • Writers help their readers understand the text by organizing their text in logical ways so readers read non-fiction texts differently, depending on their structure. • Writers write non-fiction to teach the reader about one main idea. It is the job of a reader to figure out the main thing that the writer is trying to teach you. You can use the organizational structure to figure out the main idea in nonfiction. • Writers use lots of evidence to support the main idea. These supporting details fill the text; they are found in every paragraph, all textual features, and all graphic features.

Character Development in Historical Fiction: Bud, Not Buddy Resources: 42

Big Ideas: • Authors write historical fiction to show the reader what it was like to live in a certain time period. Readers can use historical fiction to learn about new settings. • People are influenced by and react to their setting so you need to consider the setting carefully. Readers of historical fiction can use what they know about a setting to understand character actions, feelings, motivations, and traits and to make predictions. This unit uses the text Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. Each chapter lesson is accompanied by a cyclical review worksheet or open response question.
