This Delineate an Author's Argument in a Text video also includes:
Expert readers infer the writer's position in a narrative article. Illustrate how to infer using cause and effect with the video and great supplementary materials provided here. The narrator lays out visual representations of two effects and their causes using specific details from the text. She then models how to combine and summarize her conclusions from the cause and effect work into one sentence that expresses the author's claim. This is a difficult concept for pupils, and the narrator does the whole process, so you might want to use the video as a model for your own lesson, pause the video occasionally, or use the slides instead so your learners can discover the claim on their own.
