Product Description
Three different non-fiction articles about Cinco de Mayo with comprehension questions, activities to review supporting details, topic vs main idea, identifying bias, and creating a constructed response. I am providing several options of how I have used these articles with classes in the past. Each article includes a set of response questions that foster critical thinking. Answer keys are included.

The additional supporting materials (comparing supporting details, identifying topic and main idea, identifying evidence of bias, and the constructed response) are designed for a class that has already been introduced to these topics. These handouts are provided to require the students to reread each text multiple times to engage in close reading.
