New in Early Reading are four lessons that explore three different genres of nonfiction text: informational, persuasive, and argumentative.
These lessons focus on text characteristics specific to each genre and how those characteristics help the reader better understand a text as they read. Students can apply what they learn about these text characteristics to any similar text they read in the future.
