One-Pagers are short, excerpts of complex text with text dependent and specific questions that focus in on academic language for next generation assessments. They are an alternative way to get students to read, analyze, and understand a complex text. This strategy allows students to practice questions about vocabulary, syntax, and main idea using textual clues.
The One-Pager allows students to access a complex text in a different way. The text that students read is a smaller chunk of text than a Close Read. The questions are text-specific, focusing on comprehension and the understanding of vocabulary in the context of the document.
This One-Pager will discuss the attack at Pearl Harbor from both the Japanese and American perspectives.
