Lesson Plan

 

 

Objective:  Students will be able to identify all of the terms by finding examples of each non-fiction literary term.

 

Do-Now:  list as many non-fiction text features terms that you can and write down the benefit you think each one is for knowing what it is and why it is important.

 

Connection:  There are many non-fiction terms and elements and it might be hard to keep them sorted, so today we are going to work on the definitions.  It is important for us to be able to define things so that we can understand what they are and why they are important but also that when they are referenced in a test we know exactly what the test is referencing us. 

 

Teach/Model:

With the class define all of the definitions of the non-fiction terms.

Define non-fiction terms:

Title: 

Caption:  text describing the contents of a picture, graph or chart

glossary
alphabetical list of key terms related to a subject
index
alphabetical list of topics included in the book and their corrsponding page numbers; found in the very back
table of contents
a list of the parts of a book or document; placed at the front of the book, it's organized in the order in which the parts appear
heading
announces the topics that will be covered, a line of text serving to indicate what the passage below it is about
subheading
a heading given to a smaller subsection within a larger piece of writing
boldface type
dark letters indicating important information; reader must slow down and pay attention to these
italicized type
slanted letters indicating important information; reader must slow down and pay attention to these
preface
a statement at the front of the book by the book's author or editor, explaining its purpose and expressing appreciation for help received from others
background knowledge

sidebar
In informational text, boxed sections off to the side containing interesting, related information that can stand on its own.
nonfiction
prose writing that presents and explains ideas or tells about real people, places, ideas, or events
fiction

Make a list on chart paper.

Guided Practice/independent Work:

Students will be given the terms sheet and the terms definition sheet cut up into baggies.  They will have to sort the terms and paste them on the definitions. 

 

They can also make text feature flash cards that are highlighted and make the pictures of those that are examples and then put them on their baggies.
