Transcript of Non-Fiction Text Features - 6th Grade

Text Features

table of contents
Text features are used by authors to help a
reader better understand what is being read. There are
lots of text features. We will only look at a few.
Captions explain a picture.
They help us understand
what the image has to do with the text.
Photographs help tell the story.
They give the reader visual
of what they are reading about.
Diagrams are drawings that explain
the topic. They may include
words written on the drawing showing more details than what is given in the text.
Headings are the mini-titles on a page that hint at what you are about to read. They are related to the overall topic of the story, but
break down information in to categories so you can better understand what the author is saying.
The glossary is a list of unfamiliar words
that is used within the text. They are listed in alphabetical order and have a definition to help you understand what the word means.
The table of contents lists the texts that are within the book. It shows you the page numbers of each section and text within the book so that you can see what topics you can read about. You can use the table of contents to quickly turn to a part in the book you want to read.
The index lists authors and titles alphabetically, and tells you what page you can find them on. The index is found at the back of the book.
