In this lesson, students will learn to write informational texts to examine a topic and convey ideas collaboratively and with increasing independence, using appropriate text organization. It is important to understand the purpose for writing and then, to select a text type/organization that matches that purpose. Students should know that there are different types of writing organizing strategies so they can independently select which organization is best suited for the type of text they will be writing, at a given moment.
During the lesson, the student will be able to:
- evaluate the purpose of an informative text to help determine organizational structure, in writing;
- determine the topic of a text and text organization;
- summarize informational texts to explain their content;
- use effective organizational structures to effectively compose informative texts that demonstrate a specific purpose.
