I'm looking for ideas on how to teach text features for the third time. My issue is, my kids seem to understand text organization fine, it's using the text features that kills them. I've had them make posters by pulling magazine articles and labeling the features and had them do a scavenger hunt to find the features in nonfiction books. However, when I assess them, it's like I'm torturing them and they have forgotten everything.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm supposed to be teaching it again this week and I'm also addressing it in small group/guided reading. I'm hitting a wall with ideas and they're hitting a wall with me... Hopefully the third and fourth times will be the charm???
