CRABTREE CONNECTIONS AND YOUR CURRICULUM STANDARDS

MEETING THE NEEDS OF 21ST CENTURY LEARNERS

Curriculum standards specify four types of informational text: literary non-fiction, expository, argument or persuasion, and procedural. These text types have distinct purposes, features, and structures. Crabtree Connections exposes readers to these key text types. This series is an invaluable resource that teaches content across the subject areas while serving as mentor texts that exemplify the structures and features of specific informational text types.


                                           

Includes Journalistic, Biography, and Recount. 
Literary non-fiction communicates accurate information
and has a well-defined beginning, middle, and end;
it is written much like a story and is read from beginning to end.
