Product Description
How we use this in our classroom:

This resource is based on the concept of Article of the Week, created by Kelly Gallagher. Using Article of the Week is a great way to incorporate non-fiction text into your classroom every day.

What is included:
Three different variations of the same article
Option 1 includes blank space for students to take notes and guided reading questions to answer.
Option 2 includes boxes for “chunking” text into main ideas and guided reading questions to answer.
Option 3 includes the questions along the margin to help guide readers as they go through the article.


Open-ended response questions
STAAR-aligned multiple choice questions
2 extension activities for early finishers – Graphing and Point of View
Two different summary options
Answer keys for all questions

Possible Weekly Scaffolding Schedule

Monday – Students read the article and take notes on their own (or using whatever close reading strategies have been taught).
Tuesday – Students reread the article, answering the guided questions in the margin.
Wednesday – Students answer the open-ended comprehension questions.
Thursday – Students answer the multiple-choice questions.
Friday – Students complete a written summary of the article.

Again, this is merely one way of using this resource throughout the week. If your students need more guidance, you can always start off by modeling what you want from them each day and use the gradual release method to let them take more ownership.

The article was written for the Smithsonian and adapted by Newsela staff.
