PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**Important UPDATE: new web link for the Scholastic article: http://balancedreading.com/Scholastic_reading_facts.pdf

This is an authentic literacy exercise using a non-fiction article "Facts About Kids and Reading" from Scholastic to answer varying levels of comprehension questions. Ultimately, students will decide whether they think America is facing a literacy crisis based on the stats they read. The product addresses skills including: close reading, annotating, vocabulary development, short answer format, opinion questions, and using evidence to support claims.

Note: I have used this in conjunction with the novel HOLES by Louis Sachar to help students dig deeper into the concept that the character Zero is unable to read.
