Students will be able to identify time and sequence in technical texts.
Students will think about times they've used texts to help them complete a task or figure out how to do something. They will discuss different types of technical texts, including cookbooks and recipes, manuals, directions, websites, trade/"How-to" books, and instructions. Students will look at signal words authors of technical texts may use.
Students will read the steps to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and put them in the correct order. After that, they will talk to a classmate about why it is important to follow the steps of a recipe. Next, they will read a mixed-up passage called "How to Produce Milk" and put the passage in order according to the signal words. They will turn and talk to a partner about how they did that. They will also read a game manual for a battleship game and answer questions about it.
Review technical texts with ten questions which review key terminology and are asked to apply the terms to given text.
Have students recall what they learned in this lesson, including examples of technical texts. Lastly, students will spin the wheel to choose a technical text to write ("How-to," recipe, or game instructions/manual).
