Are you looking for a guide for the development and expression of expository thinking? MindWing’s ThemeMaker™ is a uniquely designed approach to help students organize , comprehend, orally express, and write high level narratives and informational text. ThemeMaker™ focuses on the 7 primary text structures: description, listing, sequencing, cause/effect, problem/solution, compare/contrast, and persuasion. These text structures are a roadmap to oral and written argument. In addition to these structures, we have included a conflict resolution process to tie into social communication and pragmatics.
