Helping Students Understand Text Structures: Informational Problem/solution

What does a text say? What does it do? Good readers use these questions to help them understand the structure of a problem/solution text. Model this approach by putting a copy of the included article on an overhead (or interactive white board). After completing a think-aloud in front of the class, engage learners in a guided practice activity. For independent practice, groups identify a problem and discuss two possible solutions before drafting their own problem/solution essay.
