Nonfiction Text Structures

In this seminar, you will learn about various text structures in nonfiction writing and be able to identify which type an author is using. Understanding these structures will help you determine an author’s purpose and allow you analyze (break down) the author’s message or main points. As you get better at identifying different text structures, you will notice these patterns and apply them to different types of writing: articles, recipes, speeches, etc. Some of this information may be a review; that’s a  good thing. Be sure to apply that prior knowledge to new experiences here, looking for patterns that seem familiar to you. As you recognize those patterns and apply them to new situations, you will be using a skill called abstracting, which helps you understand new or confusing concepts.StandardsCC.1.2.9-10.B: Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences and conclusions based on an author’s explicit assumptions and beliefs about a subject.CC.1.2.9-10.C: Apply appropriate strategies to analyze, interpret, and evaluate how an author unfolds an analysis or series of ideas or events, including the order in which the points are made, how they are introduced and developed, and the connections that are drawn between them.CC.1.2.9-10.I: Analyze seminal U.S. documents of historical and literary significance, including how they address related themes and concepts.

In this project, you will explore a real-world problem, and then work through a series of steps to analyze that problem, research ways the problem could be solved, then propose a possible solution to that problem. Often, there are no specific right or wrong solutions, but sometimes one particular solution may be better than others. The key is making sure you fully understand the problem, have researched some possible solutions, and have proposed the solution that you can support with information / evidence.Begin by reading the problem statement in Step 1. Take the time to review all the information provided in the statement, including exploring the websites, videos and / or articles that are linked. Then work on steps 2 through 8 to complete this problem-based learning experience.
