Writing Text Type Tools:  How do we help students understand the similarities and differences between Argument (Opinion), Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative writing? These visual charts build big-picture understanding and detailed nuances of the three writing text types. These memory-building tools were created to align with brain-based research, developing understanding of text type definitions, purposes, genres, and elements with stories, graphics, and key concepts. The Argument (Opinion), Informative/Explanatory, and Narrative Text Type Charts are used to build guidelines for how to effectively communicate rigorous concepts across content areas.
