User:Amchelt/Helping Students to Navigate Informational Texts
Something To Think about
Teachers must be cognisant when choosing informational texts for instructional purposes, that most students have two different instructional reading levels.
- An instructional level for fictional texts.
- An instructional level for nonfictional (informational) texts.
- Informational texts usually have more difficult words and technical data for students to navigate before they can fully comprehend the author's purpose.
- The instructional level for informational texts is usually therefore a level or two below that for fictional texts.
