What this resource is all about
The purpose of this resource is to provide ready-to-go non-fiction texts and engaging higher order thinking questions.
Students are also exposed to a range of graphic organisers to arrange their new knowledge. Examples are provided for you as an extra teaching resource.
An added bonus of these activities is that they also incorporate writing skills. Research shows that reading and writing skills improve when they are integrated.
Say goodbye to short simple passages with three multi-choice questions, and say hello to the future: quality close reading passages, engaging topics (more to come too folks!), exciting higher order thinking activities, and most importantly, growth in your students' reading comprehension and writing abilities!
