Buyer note - these passages are very similar to the 6th and 7th grade literature bundle. They have been modified to include increased difficulty of the sentence structure, advanced vocabulary, and longer length with additional information. The close reading questions have been modified to align with the complexities of the 8th grade Common-Core Standards.
Why am I qualified to write these passages and close reading activities? Not only have I worked as a Language Arts Teacher for 30 years with a Highly Qualified Status, but I also have spent the last 15 years writing state and national assessments, such as the SATs, ACTs, and individual state assessments that align with the Common-Core standards. This includes grading, item writing, and passage writing for these assessments.
