Over the course of the past week we have been analyzing the features of informational texts, and we have read and analyzed three informational texts over the 2011 Fukushima Disaster and Tsunami.

In class we read the short Science Fiction story “He-y, Come on Ou-t!” – a Japanese tale that focuses on the effects of natural disasters, man’s need to be mindful of waste management and recycling, and a surprise ending that touches on what happens when we ignore our problems and obligations to the environment.

Click here for a copy of the short story, “He-y, Come on Ou-t!”


After analyzing this text in class, you will be creating your own informational text about the events that happened in this story. Please remember, this is NOT a summary of the text – we are checking to see that you can use the appropriate diction and tone for your audience and that you can use at least five informational text features.
