Lesson: Teaching Non-Fiction Labels
Objective: Students will be able to identify different examples of informational text by labeling the features on examples of non-fiction text passages.
Do-Now: Cut out the text feature labels on your desk. Students will be cutting out all of the labels that they are going to do when they are going to cut out and define the definitions.
Connection: It’s one thing to be able to identify or talk about something but today we are going to work on really seeing if we know what these terms mean by finding examples of them and labeling them.
Teach/Model: go over the list of non-fiction terms, you can also do a non-fiction test passage as a whole class reading and then model how you should answer the questions.
Blow up pictures of non-fiction texts students will label do gallery walks and label the different parts of non-fiction text using the text features labels. You can also put the different non-fiction text features up on chart paper and then students can go around and find different examples of each text feature and put examples.
Students can take a passage and then identify all of the terms that are non-fiction on the passage. They can write questions just based on what they see on the passage.
Students can each have a different colored marker so that they can go around and each contribute lists of features.
STudents can also write questions based on the non-fiction passage that they are analyzing.
IF students have science or social studies text books they can go in and write a post it for each of the non-fiction text features that they can label where they find evidence of that feature in the book.
