What educators are saying
Need more informational text-based lessons in your classroom? This print-and-go worksheet is the perfect little tool to use as a weekly, occasional, or extra credit assignment. You can either provide an article for your students to work through as a class or assign students to find their own article to use as the basis of the lesson.
Whether you use this handout as an in-class assignment to use with copies of your local newspaper, take kids to the computer lab to find an online article, or assign the handout to be completed by online learners, the results will be real-world close reading skill builders for your tweens and teens.
This handout, which includes both a PDF and Google Drive version, also works great as material for your emergency sub plan folder!
Designed for students in grades 6 through 12, this single-page activity was built to work in English/language arts, history/social studies, journalism, and business classes.
Hope you get good use out of this print-and-teach worksheet!
