In this third semester, in the course Intermediate Reading Comprehension, I learned about a lot of kinds of text in Text Types in English book and a lot of stories in Developing Skills book. In the Text Types in English book there are 2 chapters: Chapter I is about: 1. Unit 1 – Poetic and dramatic texts. 2. Unit 2 – Recounting 3. Unit 3 – Explaining 4. Unit 4 – Discussing Chapter II is about: 1. Unit 1 – Narrative and response texts 2. Unit 2 – Procedure texts 3. Unit 3 – Information Reports 4. Unit 4 – Exposition texts Below is a summary of some of the units above. Chapter I 1. Unit 1 - Poetic and dramatic texts. The poetic type is used to express feelings and views of life. A poem can tell a story or give the poet’s thoughts on experiences, people or events. Poetry is usually written to be read aloud. Some examples of poetic and dramatic texts are: - Ballads - Haiku - Limericks - Song Lyrics - Film scripts - Stage plays - Improvisations - Street theatre 2. Unit 2 – Recounting A recount is a piece of text that retells events, usually in the order in which they happened. The purpose of a recount is to give the audience a description of what occurred and when it occurred. Some examples of recounts are: - Newspaper reports - Conversations - Speeches

- Television interviews - Eyewitness Accounts - Letters 3. Unit 3 – Explaining Speaking or writing about how or why things happen is called an explanation. The explaining text type tells how or why something occurs. It looks at the steps rather than the things. The purpose of an explanation is to tell each step of the process (the how) and to give reasons (the why) Some examples of explanations are: - How something occurs - Why something happened - Why things are alike or different - How to solve a problem 4. Unit 4 – Discussing The discussion text type gives the for and against, the positive and negative, or the good points and the bad points. The purpose of a discussion is to present to the audience different opinions on a topic and, the end, your opinion. Some examples of discussion are: - Talkback radio - Current affairs interviews - Essays - Debates - Letters to the editor - Newspaper articles Chapter II 1. Unit 1 – Narrative and response text The narrative text type tells a story. Its purpose is to present of view of the world that entertains or informs the reader or listener. The response text type is a person’s response or action to another text (a book, film, play, poem and so on). It gives a description of the work and a judgement. Some examples of narrative texts are: - Fantasy novels - Bedtime stories (spoken) - Historical fiction - Stories Some examples of response text types are: - Book reviews - Movie reviews - Song reviews

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
