LET'S READ ABOUT READING! Going deeper into informational texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate reading skill content into your reading instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these differentiated "Author's Purpose" reading passages and comprehension questions. In this product, there are three informational reading passages based on author's purpose, and what the student needs to know to learn to how to determine the author's purpose. If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. I've leveled each passage with its Lexile reading level. There are also three different sets of questions that are differentiated alongside the passages.
