Close Reading with a Nonfiction Article "View from the Summit"

Close Reading with a Nonfiction Article "View from the Summit"
Product Description
This lesson applies the ELA common core standards. It includes close reading skills and asks students to include text-based evidence when answering questions about the text. It also asks the students to make inferences based on the contradictory information presented in two separate articles about the same topic. I have adapted the article "View from the Summit" from the Prentice Hall textbook to do similar tasks as O'Dell's close reading activities. This lesson includes handouts and a pre-reading editing sentence to prepare the students for what they will be reading. It also includes text-based questions, project based analysis activities, and an inferring activity where students need to make inferences about the credibility of conflicting sources.
