Product Description
Gangs & Teens Close Reading and Mind Mapping Activity

This close reading is the perfect addition to any lesson on youth crime and teens in gangs. Related novels include titles such as Monster by Walter Dean Myers, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, Romiette and Julio by Sharon M. Draper, and many of the books in The Bluford Series. Students will read and respond to questions. After reading, students will create a mind map summarizing the information in the article. You can also hold a class discussion making connections between the article and other texts/media.

Customer Tips:

How to get TPT credit to use on future purchases:
• Please go to your My Purchases page (you may need to login). Beside each purchase you'll see a Provide Feedback button. Simply click it and you will be taken to a page where you can give a quick rating and leave a short comment for the product. Each time you give feedback, TPT gives you feedback credits that you use to lower the cost of your future purchases. I value your feedback greatly as it helps me determine which products are most valuable for your classroom so I can create more for you.
