At the start of the unit students will be taught about text features and how to navigate through nonfiction text. They will be reminded to apply all that they have already learned about reading as well. Towards the middle of the unit, students will be encouraged to talk about, decode, and develop an understanding of new vocabulary that is domain specific.

Post-it notes and conversations will help prepare the students to teach others about their topic of choice.
