When researching for an informational essay, science project, or just to get a good grade on a test - you need to be able to navigate through text and digital media quickly.
One source of help is TEXT FEATURES. These are additional ways the author communicates information to us (the readers).
For example, if I was trying to locate information about the Underground Railroad - which feature would I want to re-read to answer the question?
That's right - the box entitled "The Underground Railroad".
Let's see text features in action.
