Reflection: Accountability Informational Text Features: Use your best features - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Because we’ve discussed that books will not always have all of the features, I tell kids that if they are missing a feature from one of the questions, they can write “none” in the answer space. I also take a few minutes to explain the importance of finding a book that is feature-rich so that they can get the most out of the assignment and really explore the features to learn more about their topic. If a student turns in a Guide with “none” written in too many sections, I will choose a different book for them to use. Some students will need guidance when finding the right book for them for this concept.
