Non-Fiction Text Support - 5-Step Strategy

  • 1.  Read the title.

         Do I know anything about the topic?

    2.  Read the subtitles.

         What do I think the connection is betwee this and the title?

    3.  Look at the words that are bolded and italicized.

         What are the connections?

    4.  Take a picture walk through the text.

         What connections can I make?

    5.  Read the first and last paragraphs.

         Does this help me with the big picture?
