Structure in a news article

Newsela Article

Learning Objective

Today I am learning how an author uses structure to make a coherent point, so I can understand more and use effective structure in writing.

I know I understand when I can point to what certain sentences, paragraphs, and sections in an article do to support a central idea.

Students will be able toexplain how parts of an article support central ideas.

Learning Standard

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI 6.5
Analyze how a particular sentence, paragraph, chapter, or section fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the ideas.
