Testing season is almost always upon us, which means we almost always need close reading practice.
This excerpt focuses on the need for, richness of, and use of America's public lands.
The Buchanan inaugural speech activity contains questions on:
*Effect of author's choices
*Connection to current events
This is part of a series of seven practice excerpts that have everything you'll need to encourage best practices in annotating, active reading, using context clues, and evaluating a wide range of literary tools.
Each excerpt is formatted for easy annotation and is followed by a combination of multiple choice, performance tasks, short answer, constructed response, and essay options. Several have vocabulary activities, and each is print-ready.
Use these as a companion activity to the inauguration, or as test-prep practice, sub-day work, or connections to long term assignments.
