Bundle Description
This large California Gold Rush Bundle with Text Dependent Questions for CLOSE reading contains a wide variety of resources needed to teach a rigorous unit on the California Gold. It includes CLOSE Reading nonfiction passages to help teach your students about the California Gold Rush (not familiar with CLOSE reading? It’s okay, we have instructions and anchor charts to help you incorporate it into your teaching). There are text dependent questions aligned with each passage, a set of vocabulary cards with definitions to accompany the passages, A California Gold Rush Research Report, and much, much more. A variety of other graphic organizers and activities are included as well.

We do encourage you to supplement with any other books, videos, and websites that you already use; they will blend nicely with our CLOSE reading passages. You can use this unit in its entirety, or “pick and choose” the components to meet the needs of your students.

This bundle contains the following elements:
• California Gold Rush Research Report
• CLOSE reading nonfiction passages:
1. Passage One – The California Gold Rush
2. Passage Two – The Effects of the Gold Rush
• Vocabulary cards with definitions for each CLOSE reading passage
• CLOSE Reading Instructions PowerPoint (or handout) explaining the steps of CLOSE Reading
• Anchor Charts for student annotation and Discussion Topics for CLOSE Reading
• “Text Dependent Questions”, to be used after all passages are read; this is intended as a summative assessment, or practice in citing textual evidence and giving examples from the reading of nonfiction text
• Common Core Essential questions (to be used after all passages are read, can be used as a summative assessment or a performance task)
• Cognitive Content Dictionary (to be made into a “book” for student vocabulary words, definitions, and pictures
• KWL Chart ( you can use this at the beginning of the unit to ascertain what they may already know about the California Missions)
• Venn Diagram to compare and contrast similarities and differences.
• A Tree Map Graphic Organizer ( a grammar component for students to analyze the words in the passages and their parts of speech)
