Text Structures

Each printable text structure activity provides six short passages and a worksheet for (1) identifying each passage’s text structure (chronological, compare and contrast, cause and effect, sequence, problem and solution) and (2) completing a related graphic organizer. There are also answer keys and suggested reading grade level ranges: 5-9, 6-10, or 7-11.

Completing these activities may align with Reading Standards, CCR Anchor 5: Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole. It appears most useful for High Intermediate ABE, Advanced ESL, ASE, and GED students.
