Comprehending Informational Text

Banisters, balusters, and a newel post? Reading functional text (technical manuals, workplace documents, assembly instructions, etc.) can be a challenge. Help your tenth graders prepare for the world of warranties, technical manuals, and consumer publications with a short exercise that asks them to examine the purpose, organizational pattern, and clarity of a short excerpt from a home repair manual. Four questions based on the passage are referenced but not included.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
