Most school systems all over the country are emphasizing INFORMATIONAL TEXT this year. The study of fiction has taken a backseat. How do we make sure we have practiced these? I’ve got a product that should make it easier. I’ve created templates that will save you time.
These templates provide a format to use in teaching all 9 Common Core standards for reading informational text. I’ve divided them into the standards to be used with a single text and one to be used with multiple informational texts. I’ve worded the items in the hopes that they will be “student friendly.” If you have purchased my other templates for novels and for short stories, then these are similar.
I’m sending these saved in two ways:
*Use the PDF format for just making copies. You won’t have to adjust your margins. Everything should appear as it is on your screen. In this format, you will write by hand the questions and other information for the particular informational text you have chosen before making copies.
*Use the Word document when you would like to “type” your questions and other information that the teacher has to decide for the particular informational text chosen each time. You may have to adjust your margins (See “Letter to the Teacher” that comes with the product). I have set up the “lines” so that you can type on the lines. You don’t have to erase them first to type. This should save time too.
I have 70 or more products mostly for ELA/Reading middle school. You can see my products at
