Product Description
May Close Reading: This close reading unit for May is ready to ignite learning for your middle school students. Students will read stories on SnapChat, Bill Gates, The Masters, and Music Festivals. CLICK PREVIEW TO VIEW A LARGE PORTION OF THIS UNIT. My students were tired of reading the same old passages about things that weren’t relevant to their lives. So I decided to poll my students for this month’s close reading! Use the close reading strategies to help guide you with these differentiated close reading passages. In this unit you will receive common core alignment grades sixth, seventh, and eighth. Four separate differentiated passages ranging from lexile levels between 800-1150. Each passage includes a comprehension check, tons of worksheets that apply to informational text standards, and creative writing.
