    Bundle Description

    Differentiated passages (3 per topic) related to the Civil Rights Movement allow students to read about Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Brown v. Board of Education, Plessy v. Ferguson, the Freedom Riders, the Greensboro Woolworth's Sit-In, and the Ku Klux Klan. Use the questions in standardized test format to check comprehension and help students prepare for high-stakes testing. Each passage contains these types of questions:

    • main idea
    • vocabulary
    • organizational patterns
    • inference
    • summarizing

    Nonfiction passages are based on Civil Rights events which occurred on this day in history. This passage is completely stand alone and appropriate for any day of the year. Mix and match to give your students daily opportunities to develop background knowledge and improve their comprehension.

    Passages have been evaluated using a minimum of 5 different readability formulas. The first passage is the most challenging, with an average reading level of 9th-10th grade. The second passage has an average readability of 8th grade. The third passage averages a 6th-7th grade level. With teacher introduction and background information, the passages have been used successfully with younger readers.

    One subject for the class with differentiated passages allows the teacher to discuss, develop background knowledge, show a video clip or engage the full class yet provide for individual differences.

    Students and teachers using multiple passages can assess student progress. Diagnostic charting shows teachers and students patterns of errors with main idea, vocabulary, organizational patterns, inference, and summarization. Compiling data is easy and motivating with student completed charts.

    Included in the lesson:

    ➢ A nonfiction passage written at three different grade levels

    ➢ Questions over the passage for each level.

    ➢ An answer key

    ➢ A chart to monitor progress and collect data in the five assessed areas (main idea, vocabulary, organizational patterns, inference, and summarizing
