This minimal-prep pack of close read passages, complete with comprehension handouts and answer keys, can be used in a multitude of ways. The 30 passages in this pack cover ten different topics, with three engaging and rigorous passages per topic - a literary narrative, an opinion, and an informational text passage. Use these in whole group, small group, and/or in a center as an author's purpose sort activity or close reading exercise with paired passages. You can also use the cards as mentor texts to teach narrative, opinion, and informative writing, as well as paragraph structure. This product's versatility gives you a lot of value, and all you need to do is cut, print, and laminate.
