Images from Shutterstock.com Bulleted/Numbered/Lettered Lists Lists of any sort help you identify the information given a lot more clearly. Lists may show you a list of possibilities, numbers, or it may even be a list of chores. Whatever information it may contain, a list will tell you whatever you need to know. Caption! Titles tell you what the article, story, book or magazine is about. Some examples of titles may be:
"Shooting in Connecticut"
"Murder Plot to Kill Justin Bieber"
"Hurricane Sandy Devastates Families on East Coast."
Subtitles are found right under the title. They provide additional information about a specific section. Titles and Subtitles Sidebar A sidebar may contain additional information about the article or book you are reading. In a sidebar, you may find vocabulary words, hints about the story, or what a character means by something that he or she says. A caption under a photo, graph, or chart may tell you what is happening, what is written, or what a survey was about. Boldface and Italics Boldface font, as well as Italic font is used to emphasize a word or words. Boldface font is very dark and thickens the letters, so you notice them more. Italicized font is slanted, so that it also stands out. You read that word or phrase with an emphasis. Statistics "Statistics" are basically just a fancy word for numbers. In articles, you may see statistics such as:
35% of people prefer Oxi Clean over any other cleaning product!
5 out of 10 people we asked have heart burn. Timeline So what is a timeline? Well a timeline is exactly what it sounds like. It's literally a line with, most commonly, years and events written on it. Map Well I think we all know what a map is. A map is an image that shows where things are placed in a given area. If you arrive in The United States, from England, you will need a map to tour the city of course. Say you want to see the empire state building. You look at the map and see where it is placed. (Or you could just buy a GPS. :) Either way.) Nonfiction Nonfiction just means something is not fiction, or not fake. Nonfiction means something is real. Articles and textbooks are all nonfiction. And last but not least...
Background Knowledge! Your background knowledge is what you already know about a certain topic. It's what you already know from personal experiences, learning previously about the same topic, or something you are just simply taught as a child. Well that's it for our flight through the city! We hope you liked it. :D
