Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Text Structures: Cause and Effect - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Graphic organizers are a great way to organize and represent information for Text Structures. With Cause and Effect, a t-chart works well because students can see examples quickly and make the connection between the left side and right side. When we did our unit on Cause and Effect as a reading comprehension strategy earlier in the year, we also used a t-chart so this activity should feel familiar and comfortable for the students. Throughout this unit, I will draw on their background knowledge and schema to help deepen their understanding of each Text Structure.
