    To create the text structure strategy teachers should:

    Choose the assigned reading and introduce the text to the students. Introduce the idea that texts have organizational patters called text structures. Introduce the following common text structures (see chart below for more detailed information) : description, sequence, problem and solution, cause and effect, and compare and contrast. Introduce and model using a graphic organizer to chart the text structure.

    To use the text structure strategy teachers should:

    Show examples of paragraphs that correspond to each text structure. Examine topic sentences that clue the reader to a specific structure. Model the writing of a paragraph that uses a specific text structure. Have students try write paragraphs that follow a specific text structure. Have students diagram these structures using a graphic organizer.
