Mrs. Jordan and her third grade students have recently completed a study on nonfiction features. Text features helps the reader make sense of their reading. The Common Core English Language Arts: Reading~ Informational Text Strand for Grades 1-5 states: Know and use various text features (e.g., headings, tables of contents, glossaries, electronic menus, icons) to locate key facts or information in a text.
After the study of text features was complete, students wrote their individual scripts for their text feature segment for the highly anticipated Team Jordan News greenscreen production.
