This resource is meant to be a weekly review of the Common Core reading informational and literature standards of point of view and multiple accounts of a topic or event. This can be used for homework, morning work, or classwork and would be perfect to use during a Point of View Unit or after the unit for reinforcement.

This resource contains 4 passages written on a 4th/5th grade reading level. Each passage is split into two different points of view on the same topic or event.
One passage is meant to be used for an entire week with a different assignment each day with the same passage. The students will have to revisit the passage each day to complete the daily assignment. This will support a deeper understanding of the text and provide the student with practice with close reading of a text.
I have included two options for the daily assignments (on pages 5-6) for you to choose from to use based on your students' needs.
I have also included a blank directions page if you want to write in your own directions for the daily assignments (page 7). Print the directions you want to use and the passage and questions for the week. Give the students the handout (page 9) to record their homework on or a blank piece of notebook paper. A journal or notebook could also be used.
For each option, Monday through Wednesday are general open ended responses to the text and Thursday is a set of comprehension questions specific to each story. The open ended response deal with analyzing and comparing and contrasting the different points of view. The comprehension questions are text dependent questions that explore the specific point of view of the texts and how they influence the information being described.
An answer key with suggested answers is included for the Thursday comprehension questions.
