Our Problem and Solution Nonfiction Text Structure lesson plan teaches students why the problem and solution nonfiction text structure is important for many subjects. Students should familiarize themselves with summarizing events and identifying the main problem and solution of a passage as a way to ensure comprehension of the subject matter. During this lesson, students are asked to read a provided text, highlight keywords that signal the passage uses problem and solution as its text structure, fill out a problem/solution table and complete the summary statement to write what they learned about the topic.

At the end of the lesson, students will read and write examples of description nonfiction text structure, list and identify keywords for the text structure, and set a purpose for its use.

    Great Resource as Usual!

    Clarendon Resources are so helpful in my situation. I teach in a residential hospital for teenagers with mental health issues, and have multi-grade, multi-ability classes. Many of my students have significant gaps in their learning. I had taught my students to use 5W questions when reading and taking notes, but this resource connected the dots for them.
