Informational text impacts our lives every day. In order to take advantage of the knowledge these texts offer, we must know how to read and analyze the information they contain. During this unit, the students will learn the elements of informational text, apply their knowledge by reading and analyzing a variety of writings, and demonstrate what they have learned through the composition of informational texts of their own. They will learn just how important informational text is and has been to their lives and how they can use it to communicate knowledge.
