Written by a classroom teacher, this book provides an instructional approach to teaching students the structures of expository text in Grades 3-8. Using graphic organizers to visually depict the structures, the author takes a close look at seven patterns or structures: sequence, enumerative, compare/contrast, cause/effect and problem/solution, description, and question/answer. The book illustrates how to introduce children from Grades 3-8 to different text patterns or structures to assist them in both their reading and writing of expository text.

Additional chapters examine the reading/writing connection; signal words; and essay writing. Designed as a teacher resource tool, lesson approaches, text samples and evaluation tools are provided as blackline masters in the book.
