What educators are saying
Prepare students for the rigors of state reading tests with these African-American biographies and constructed response, text dependent questions. Use these in February for Black History Month and throughout the spring! Study 9 influential, African-American Heroes while practicing responding to constructed response and extended response questions using text evidence (RACE writing strategy).
Each biography comes with coordinating open-ended questions, directing students to use text evidence in their responses, aligned with Common Core standards for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. The passages challenge students to interact with rigorous, but interesting and relevant informational text.
