Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Text Structures: Description - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Graphic organizers are a great way to organize and represent information for Text Structures. With Description, a concept web works best because students can focus on the topic in the center and add an unlimited amount of description about the topic on the spokes. This type of organizer is a great tool for taking notes while reading descriptive text and for brainstorming before writing descriptive text. Throughout this unit, I will draw on their background knowledge and schema to help deepen their understanding of each Text Structure.
