Product Description
This document set includes three levels of adaptation of the powers of the Constitution, covering Article 1 (sections 8-9), Article 2 (sections 2-4), and Article 3 (sections 2-3). The original text of the Constitution is at a 1560 Lexile level. The fully modified text is at an 860 Lexile level. The set also includes a mid-level document where the full modifications are incomplete, requiring students to hunt through the original text to find key words to complete the modifications. Finally, the set includes a combination of all three texts in one, with Article 1 fully modified, Article 2 partially modified, and Article 3 with only vocab support.

The included activity asks students to sort the powers of each branch into three categories - broad, specific, and limited powers. A one page informational text explains and defines these three categories. A key for this activity is not included because this task is interpretive and students should be free to defend multiple responses.
