INTRODUCTION TO THE ANCHOR ​

Anchor 5 for reading literature focuses on helping learners with understanding the text structure for fictional texts. This leads students to gain a deeper understanding for how the story develops and continues over a variety of texts and pulling together the essential components of the story while reading. Keep in mind that this standards is not simply about demonstrating a definition understanding of the elements of fictional texts rather it is to allow students to read for meaning, and to discuss the particular devices the author has created. 

  • RL.3.5 Refer to parts of stories, dramas, and poems when writing or speaking about a text, using terms such as chapter, scene, and stanza; describe how each successive part builds on earlier sections.

  • RL.4.5 Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (e.g., verse, rhythm, meter) and drama (e.g., casts of characters, settings, descriptions, dialogue, stage directions) when writing or speaking about a text.

  • RL.5.5 Explain how a series of chapters, scenes, or stanzas fits together to provide the overall structure of a particular story, drama, or poem.

  • RL.6.5 Analyze how a particular sentence, chapter, scene, or stanza fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the theme, setting, or plot.
