Presentation Transcript


Have you ever read through a story and then ten minutes later you have forgotten what you have read?


In this lesson you will use the title, images, and captions to help you better understand the text by asking yourself “what do I already know about this topic?”


Nonfiction texts usually are packed with new information and facts. Also, nonfiction texts typically text features such as pictures, captions, charts, and maps to help us better understand the text.


I didn’t learn anything!


Let’s Preview the text!


What do I already know?

Boston is a city.

I have seen little girls have tea parties.


What do I already know?

I can tell that this is an event that happened in history on some type of ship.

Jot down what you already know


In this lesson you learned how to use the title, images, and captions to help you better understand the text by asking yourself “what do I already know about this topic?”


  • Go through the rest of Boston Tea Party and look at the pictures and captions. What else do you know about the topic? Jot down your thoughts.


  • Practice looking at the title, photos, and captions to think about what you already know about the topic, using two different nonfiction pieces. Download the two attached articles. Work in pairs to practice previewing various texts.
