Learning Intention:
We are learning to utilize the text structures to assist us in
reading and creating (interdisciplinary) science and
social studies texts.
We are learning to develop ideas

the key questions of this category
of writing.
I Can:

by creating an original work including a cause with multiple effects or an effect that could have multiple causes.
I Can:

evaluate

signal words and

analyze
(deep, rational)

works of literature for their value of word choice.
I Can:

apply
(deep, rational)

the text structure, cause and effect, to both science and social studies texts.
I Can:

identify
(surface,
uni-structural)


specific words that are included in a cause and effect piece of writing.
I Can:

describe
(surface,
