Final Answer


Charting the Micro-Structure, Dweck’s “Brainology”
Charting the Text
There are two ways to chart a text. One way to chart text is to analyze the macrostructure or
larger structure of the text by analyzing the text's organizational features, in order to evaluate how
a text's structure affects the overall meaning of the text. A second way to chart a text is to analyze
the microstructure. This type of analysis examines what an author is doing and saying at the
sentence and/or paragraph level. When a reader charts what an author is doing, the reader focuses
on the deliberate choices the author make when constructing meaningful paragraphs.
When readers study the macro and micro-structures of texts they gain insight into how authors
construct meaning. Since charting moves beyond the simple comprehension of what the author is
saying in a particular paragraph, readers gain a deeper understanding of the texts they read.
