Product Description
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is the third Monday of January, and this close reading activity would be a perfect way to learn all about his role in the civil rights movement.

I have used these close reading texts with my own fifth graders to promote more meaningful interactions with text. I purposefully wrote these texts to be high-interest and short so that the students would be motivated to read the text multiple times. The follow-up activities have gotten my students to go back to the text and dig deeper.

How are my close reading texts unique?
★ Original, high-interest, and short passages written by me
★ Discreetly differentiated into four levels of difficulty to address a wide range of student abilities
★ Variety of engaging follow-up activities that require students to dig deeper into the passages

Perfect for:
★ Whole group
★ Guided reading
★ ELA centers
★ Homework

What is included?
★ Four levels of passages, second and third reading activities, writing response, and answer keys

Skills covered:
★ Timeline
★ Cause/effect
★ Opinion writing
