I teach special education. I have a group of students that are reading at below grade level, at a 2nd grade level. They struggle with reading comprehension, text structures and organization. The use of graphic organizers and signal words or phrases is an excellent idea to help them visualize what a story is about. Narrative text is hard for my students to comprehend and by adding expository text they can become very confused. Students need to be taught how to identify and analyze expository text so they can plan and know what to expect as they read informational text.
