Informational Text Features Table of Contents Headings and Subheadings Glossary Timeline Maps Real Photos Captions Sidebars Index Charts and Tables References A Table of Contents (sometimes called "Contents") appears at the front of an informational text. It provides a list of topics (chapters, headings, subheadings) along with the page number each begins on. It is organized by the order in which topics appear. Facts A fact is information that is considered accurate or "true" (although sometimes it is later proved not to be). A table of contents (also called "Contents") is a list of parts of a text (e.g., chapters, headings, etc.) along with the page number each section starts on. Each item is listed in order of appearance. An index appears at the end of a text. It contains an alphabetized list of key words along with the page number(s) these words appear on in the text. A Glossary is usually found at the end of the text. It is like a "mini-dictionary" giving definitions of terms (keywords) found in the text. Pictures of real things taken with a camera. A list of important events listed chronologically (by date/time). It is usually displayed on a line. Extra information (e.g., details, related information) often presented in a seperate box or shape. Headings are the title of a section (usually in a larger, bolded, or different font and/or colour). Text near a graphic/photo that explains what is in the photo.
