Getting ready for spring tests? This file includes four weeks of daily activities, plus an assessment.
-Four weekly texts, each on a different topic. Texts are arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
-Five multiple choice questions for each text, including questions related to main idea, text organization, and vocabulary.
-One scaffolded summary for each text. A scaffolded summary is a fill-in-the-blank summary that helps students to become accustomed to the academic language of summarizing.
-Open-ended response for each text. Open-ended responses encourage students to think more deeply about the text and find text evidence to support their answers.
-NEW! An assessment with multiple choice questions and an open-ended response.
Answers are included, as well as tips for how to lead a brief discussion of the answers. NEW: A simple PowerPoint with answers.
These materials would also work for centers, homework, or tutoring materials.
