Help your 6th graders practice mastery of Common Core State Standard Reading: Informational Text 3 (RI.6.3) with this NO-PREP set of mini-lessons.
You can save some money by purchasing this CIM as a part of my 6th grade CIM lessons super bundle:
6th Grade ALL Common Core Reading Standards Super Bundle
This is a "CIM" (a Continuous Improvement Model) resource. It is designed to instruct and assess students' mastery of CCSS.RI.6.3
→Important note: Because of how the state of Florida altered their standards (to become the LAFS), this resource IS appropriate for the LAFS as well. It aligns to LAFS.6.RI.1.3.
In this CIM, there are 3 lessons designed to take under 10 minutes each. They can be done together on a single day (although that is not the intent of the product) or on 3-5 separate days.
The excerpts for lessons 1 and 2 come from Outlines of Lessons in Botany, Part I: From Seed to Leaf, by Jane H. Newell. The excerpt from lesson 3 is adapted from Barack Obama’s 2013 Presidential Inaugural Address. All excerpts come from texts in the public domain. All excerpts are appropriate for sixth-grade students, based on a variety of readability calculators.
This CIM uses the "I do," "we do," "you do" model of instruction.
Lesson 1 has 3 questions.
Lesson 2 has 2 questions.
Lesson 3 has 3 questions.
The questions can be used as either multiple choice or short/extended response. The questions are not exhaustive of those that could be asked for this standard, but are a good place to start.
This product is a .zip with 3 separate files: the teacher version (with script), student version without answer choices (open-response), and student version with answer choices (multiple-choice). Student versions may be copied and distributed as necessary for purchasing teacher's classes.
The teacher pages include the questions for display (both with and without answer choices), the excerpts for display, and the teacher script.
