Product Description
Whether you teach English Language Arts or History/Social Studies, you need complex texts for close reading assignments aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
More than that, though, you need texts formatted in a way that encourages your students to read critically and think deeply.
This critical reading activity presents one paragraph from Thomas Paine's "American Crisis: Number One" and takes students through several readings.
With each pass through the text, students analyze word choice, author's purpose and writing style. They support their findings with text evidence and clear explanations.
This type of practice is essential to creating competent readers and thinkers.
The Thinking Kind of Reading teacher store and blog, thinkingkindofreading.wordpress.com is dedicated to the best in reading and writing instruction.
