Students struggle with the transition of reading and writing narrative

text in the early grades to reading and writing expository text in the upper grades.

It is imperative that students be taught how to understand expository language

in order for them to gain comprehension of the different types of informational text.

By using traditional instruction and technology, teachers can use scaffolding activities

to improve students’ comprehension, reading, and writing of expository text.
