A “structure” is a building or framework

“Text structure” refers to how a piece of text is built
What is a text structure?
Writers use different structures to build their ideas
Each text structure communicates ideas in a different way
What is a text structure?
Cause and Effect
What was the structure of the clip
For each of the following clips
Determine the structure by using your handout

Let's try a few in actual text
Deviled Eggs
Pop out (remove) the egg yolks to a small bowl and mash with a fork.
Add mayonnaise, mustard powder, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Fill the empty egg white shells with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with paprika. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to one day before serving.
Sports at EricsonC
There are two popular sports played at Ericson, basketball and volleyball.
Both take place inside of the gym at Ericson. Also, each sport has two teams of people. In basketball, however, the ball can be played off of the floor, and in volleyball, the ball cannot touch the floor or it is out of play. Basketball and volleyball are popular sports at Ericson.
Compare and Contrast
I feel that women need to learn their place and stay at home in the kitchen. It's a man's world out there and they need to realize this. Jobs are becoming ever harder for people to find so save them for the real bread winners. Men. Who here agrees with me?
The Hard Life of Farmers
The lack of rain and snow has horrible effects on farmers. with no rain their land dries up, and it is very difficult to grow anything. When the crops fail, the farmers haven't any choice but to get a second job in order to make the money they need. Farming is a full time job and with a second job, farmers are overworked, stressed and even depressed. Many farmers end up selling their land. Some farmers have accepted the government program the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), which is the land is left idle to let the grass grow and must be left idle a certain number of years. while the land is in the CRP program, some farmers have taken outside jobs. That is why when it doesn't rain, you notice that most of the farmers are very crabby. As a farmer's daughter, I have experienced some good times and some bad times. I have gained a great respect for farmers everywhere.
Cause and Effect
The most successful person in my family was my father.He born in a log cabin in 1936 My father began school a the age of seven.Shortly after that he broke his leg. He was president of his high school class and then enrolled at Harvard.Upon graduation married my mother. That is why I am here today.
The great white shark is a streamlined swimmer and a ferocious predator with 3,000 teeth at any one time. This much-feared fish has a torpedo-shaped body, a pointed snout, a crescent-shaped tail, 5 gill slits, no fin spines, an anal fin, and 3 main fins: the dorsal fin (on its back) and 2 pectoral fins (on its sides). When the shark is near the surface, the dorsal fin and part of the tail are visible above the water.
Keep your handout to help you identify text structures in the future!
