What is a technical text?
This engaging volume introduces readers to the world of technical texts and their uses and is aligned with grade 2 Common Core ELA-Literacy standards. Students learn about the purposes and types of technical texts, and actually analyze sample texts. They review experiments, recipes, and crafts, and compare and contrast the examples. They also discover how specific images contribute to and clarify texts. In an activity section, readers are given the opportunity to write their own technical text. Vocabulary boxes explain diagrams, format, charts, data, and warning boxes. Sidebars profile noteworthy writers, including Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Charles Darwin, and Martha Stewart.
