A great Article of the Week that can be used for No Prep Homework or classwork. Good for substitute work. Perfect for practicing close reading and annotating. A great way to incorporate social studies into Language Arts and to get students to really interact with the text.
Focus skill is Chronological order and main idea. A rubric is included.
Each article includes specific directions to read multiple times, number the paragraphs, define bold words with context clues, utilize close reading stratagies to in margins.
I teach grade six and created this article to work with my struggling readers. So would be a great challenging read for 4th grade, or a perfect remediation for 6th grade.
I use these weekly as my homework- the students get all week to work on them and turn them in on Friday.
Could also be utilized as an assessment.

I also have ELA Warm-ups.
