Content Cards: Text Structures, Grades 9-12

Today’s post is Text Structures for Different Types of Writing.  I designed this tool for teachers, but there are many pages that will also be good resource materials for students.   In this handy guide, you’ll find a quick overview of the text types (i.e., Argumentative, Informational, Narrative) in the Common Core State Standards.  AFter that, I’ve included my content cards for the following five text structures: compare/contrast, cause/effect, problem/solution, sequence, and description.

Check these out to see if they are something you can use!  Here’s the link: http://datadeb.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/001_text_structures-deb-wahsltrom.pdf

    Thank you for sharing your Content Cards at the high school. I noticed in a previous blog, someone asked if you were creating these for middle school. Do you plan on creating this for elementary grades 3-5?

    I love this….is this available with the standards for 3-5? I would love to use the text structure cards but would need the standards for the lower grades since I teach 4th grade.

      Looks like I need to get this done sooner rather than later!
