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.
