Teacher Ideas and Strategies for the classroom
From Erin Carpenter 6th/7th Grade ELA Teacher
I am using the summary statement sentence frame today for one of the "blasts" in study sync. Here is how I'm using the blanks.
main idea
informational text structure
For now, I'm going to teach them to pick one of the following for the last blank. These are study sync's 4 informational text structures.
*compare and contrast
*problem and solution
*cause and effect
So they will write "by using compare and contrast text structure. If we get to the next level, we could have them say "by comparing the different opinions about who Shakespeare really was" or something more applicable to the text.
