Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Text Structures: Name that Structure – Problem and Solution Edition - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


For today’s lesson, the text that I am giving students uses the Problem and Solution Text Structure. I want to mix up the order a bit so that students won’t rely on the order of their anchor chart to decide. Problem and Solution is often confused with Cause and Effect because kids usually see a cause to a problem and the effect is the problem itself. The main difference between the two is exactly that, the problem. Cause and Effect does not always have a problem and Problem and Solution does not always include a cause. Since there are such blurred lines with this, expect students to choose and defend both, which leads to great discussions.
