Science in Reading
What we read is structured differently depending on the author's reasons for writing and what kind of information the author wished to convey.
Different types of texts are called
genres
.
Procedural text
is one type of genre.
What are some things you might want to learn how to make or do?

a recipe, a model, a craft, a skill
Procedural tests tells us step-by-step how to do or make something.

They usually include a
list of materials
. Sometimes the
steps are numbered
. Many of them use
graphic features
such as
pictures, illustrations, and diagrams
to help us understand the text.

cookbooks craft books

self-help books
procedural texts
operations manuals

science experiments game rules


What type of text might you use to make something?

What might you use to find out how to operate something, such as a TV?

What type of text might you use to learn how to do something?
Open your books to pp. 398-401.

1. Preview the selection by looking at the title, text features (headings, photographs, illustrations, and bulleted lists.)

How do the pictures help you predict what the selection is about?
This is what I thought when I previewed the selection.

"The pictures on pp. 398-401 show red worms, so I know that this text is about worms. I see the p. 399 shows a list of materials and includes pictures of the items. Pp. 400 and 401 both show a series of steps.

By looking at these pictures, I can predict that this is an article about how to make something with worms."
2. Read pp. 398, 399 with a partner. After you read, discuss what important details and facts does the author give to convince you that making a compost is a good idea?
3. Read pp. 400, 401 with your partner. After you read, discuss what text features does the author use these pages to help you understand the text?
Answer: The author says worms can make compost from trash and this helps the environment by recycling trash. She also says it is fun to do.
Answer: The author uses photos, numbered steps, headings. They help me better understand what to do in each step to make a worm bin and to maintain the bin.
4. Discuss this question with you partner and come up with an answer.

Look at the third illustration on p. 400. What tool will help you with step 5?
Answer: a shovel.
