Engaging, motivating, and interesting! Use these original non fiction texts to enhance you student's skills with close reading and analytical writing. Each passage features differentiated comprehension questions and a chance for students to write about their reading. A page with lines is also included if you would like to photocopy this on the back of each paper for their written response. Great for centers, guided reading, homework, MTSS/RTI, or research projects. Get even the most reluctant readers interested!
Each passage is:
*lexile leveled and has a word count
*has different questions at different levels of questioning
*has an opportunity for students to respond to reading by "explaining with examples from the text"
You know your students best! Please check to see if these Lexile levels will work in your classroom!
