Literacy Unit 3
Practice, practice, practice!
4 types of structures we study in 4th grade:
- Chronological Order
- Compare and Contrast
- Cause and Effect
- Problem and Solution
Visual, Oral, and Quantitative Information
We compared and contrasted visual and oral representations of the same information. In class we read "The Polar Express" and then watched video clips to compare how the information was given to the audience. We also looked at directions for an experiment and then watched video directions online. We had many great discussions in class about how different information can be presented differently and how videos and other visuals can convey meaning along with the text.
A big part of this standard is also being able reading quantitative data such as:
Reading Informational Text
The students have notes about the 3 types of texts in their interactive literacy notebooks.
Students need to be using evidence-based terms to provide evidence for reasoning when referring back to the text.
