This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
Reading and writing may be very complex. There are lots of different text types that you may encounter while reading a story book you prefer. You may scan pictures on a magazine, write your diary, or read comments and messages on your Facebook account. Text types differ in use and purpose.
In this module, you will learn how each text type works, so have fun exploring and learning new things!
In this module you will learn to:
- distinguish text types such as classification, explanation, enumeration, and recount;
- determine the purpose of the text types; and
- write a paragraph using a particular text type.
