Text structures are ways that texts can be organized. Some common types include chronological order, cause and effect, and compare and contrast. Some paragraphs use multiple types of text structures. Some use no discernible structure. That's why I made these worksheets.
These worksheets feature paragraphs that are clearly organized using one of these patterns of organization. Students are required to identify how the text is structured. Then, to help them focus their critical thinking skills, they are to use information from each passage in a graphic organizer. This will help them make connections between text and visual representations of text.
Thanks for checking out my resources on text structure! You may also want to check out my text structure activities, which includes lessons, tests, and projects. I hope that you found what you were looking for. Best wishes!

Have you come across any informational texts with mixed structures, perhaps even an embedded anecdote/narrative? I am looking to level up with my kids. Thank you so much for all the useful activities on your website.

I am new to the field of education, this was the break I needed to help with my 6th and 7th graders. I too was searching tirelessly trying to find work for my students that was relevant to the standards that have to be taught. I have a joy for teaching now. I am not stressing anymore about my lesson plans. This site has made teaching so simple for me.

This website is awesome. But, I am having a hard time locating the graphic organizers that are supposed to be a the top of the page. Could somebody tell me what I am missing/doing wrong?
