Product Description
This bundle includes three different text sets and their accompanying prompts. The details for each set are provided below:

Comparing Purposes of Space Exploration Speeches - Informational Text:
This text set uses portions of President Kennedy's famous speech declaring the U.S. would go to the moon and President Obama's speech, more than 50 years later, on the topic of further space exploration. Students are given the task to compare the purpose of the two speeches to one another. This assignment will strengthen your students experience with the idea of using the text to support their writing from short pieces, as most end-of-course or end-of-year assessments require.

Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 4 pages long.


Literary Elements Affecting Mood - Literary Analysis Text Set:
This text set uses an excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" alongside a portion from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby to provide students with a chance to demonstrate their literary analysis abilities. Background knowledge of either text is not necessary, and this assignment will strengthen your students experience with the idea of using the text to support their writing from short pieces, as most end-of-course or end-of-year assessments require.

Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 3 pages long.


Informational Text Set - Climate Change:
This four-passage text set is accompanied by an informational prompt regarding the topic of global warming. It's a great assignment to engage students and help them work on the skill of finding and citing information from the text provided, rather than relying on their own prior knowledge or feelings about the given topic.

Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is 5 pages long.


As with all products sold by A Teacher's Teacher, I take great pride in providing materials in multiple forms. In the case of this item, you will receive the text set and prompt in a ready-to-use format for easy accessibility (.pdf) as well as a file that you can open and edit, to best fit for your own classroom needs (.docx). In addition, I have also provided the option to use a quick-sharing link for Google Docs, in case you use the Google Suite of Apps. All you'll have to do is open the Word or PDF file labeled for Google Docs, copy the link provided, and paste it into your web browser. From there, follow the directions on the Word document or PDF to save it to your Google Drive.


I encourage you to check out my other items in my store, including another text set bundle that deals with three different argumentative topics. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like to suggest a topic for a future text set item.
