Product Description
This is an ELA / Common Core Close Reading activity utilizing a portion of the Introduction of "American Holocaust" by David Stannard. It deals with the genocide caused by the arrival of Europeans in the Americas and compares that to the destruction of Hiroshima. It includes an area to annotate and vocabulary is already highlighted. There are 5 activities / questions that force students to revisit the text and develop a deeper understanding through analysis of its structure, tone, and wording.

Lexile Analyzer places it at 1570. It comes off as an easier read than that, though.

Common Core Objectives:
6-8.RH.1 Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources.
6-8.RH.2 Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions.



My name is Julie Rzemien and I approve this message :) Please favorite me as I am working on many close reading activities to post.
