As scholars in the Hive, we know the importance of features in expository texts. Features give us more information, they explain the data visually, and they literally make reading more colorful! Today, we will be looking at a lot of features as we analyze a collection of infographics. Are you asking yourself, "what are infographics?" Well, we're about to become well-versed in this "spectrum" of expository texts. In fact, we're even going to be reading expository texts from the perspective infographic designers. Phew...we've got our work cut out for us!
