Differentiated Informational Text- February Edition
With the new standards, students are expected to learn to read informational text more and more, and then to go back and cite textual evidence to support their thoughts and opinions.
When students are struggling in the classroom, this is a very difficult task. This set of reading passages and support materials are designed to scaffold instruction for various reading levels. In a sequential, research-based method, explicitly teach all students how to analyze and synthesize text on higher levels!
Included in this package are:
**** 4 steps of effective literacy strategies explained in detail.
**** 3 reading passages about events that happened in February over the years
- President Clinton’s acquittal from his impeachment trial in 1999
- The history of Valentine’s Day
- Fun Facts about the Super Bowl
**** Each passage contains the following:
- Anticipation/ pre-teaching guide, including vocabulary instruction
- Reading passages with suggestions for increasing reading fluency.
- Graphic Organizer for reading comprehension, with suggestions for collaborative learning in order to differentiate instruction
- Personal Reflection Guide designed to make students think about the text and their personal reactions to it.
TIP- If your district requires higher level Bloom’s taxonomy verbs in your lesson objectives, there are suggestions within this lesson bundle!
