Text Features Evaluation
This lesson can be used as a pre-lesson for the Comparing Nonfiction Text Features lesson plan.
Students will be able to compare and contrast two nonfiction references on the same topic by reviewing their text features.
Students will be able to evaluate text features with new vocabulary using visuals and partnerships.
- Distribute the pre-cut cards from the Text Features Sort worksheet to each group.
- Ask them to pair a text features image with their respective definitions. If they cannot pair them all, make sure to focus on those text features during the word level focus section of the lesson.
- Have one group evaluate another group’s pairings. Spend one to two minutes allowing group members to offer corrections to each other if necessary.
- Tell students that today they'll use their understanding of text features to evaluate the importance of text features in a nonfiction text.
