Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students explore the nature and structure of expository texts focusing on cause and effect. After activating prior knowledge about cause and effect, they discover these relationships in a text and record what they find in a graphic organizer. Students work in small groups to apply what they learned using related books and then write paragraphs outlining the cause-and-effect relationships they have found. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
