Part-to-whole relationships in text structure | Reading | Khan Academy

How is an informational text like Voltron, the giant robot made from other, smaller robots? Well, a text is made up of other, smaller sections of text, which are in turn made up of paragraphs and sentences—and each smaller component serves the larger component to drive towards the main point of the text. This is similar to how the lion-shaped robots combine to make a giant person-shaped robot; listen, don't think about it too hard or it falls apart.
