PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This study unit teaches students how to explain relationships within informational and literary texts.

The activities have PAARC aligned questions that encourage the students to complete selected response inquiries, and then note evidence from the text to support their selected response.

Each activity also includes Common Core aligned Speaking and Listening skills that have the students orally state and support their responses by using textual evidence.

To reinforce student understanding of the concepts covered within the activities, the students are encouraged to complete a Venn Diagram denoting the similarities and differences within the texts in question.
