Many state assessments have started using paired passages and texts instead of single passages. This resource will provide with the necessary resources you need to tackle paired passages in your classroom in an engaging, seasonal way.

About the Halloween Paired Passages

This resource includes two sets of paired passages (four passages total) with a Halloween theme.

Here is a snapshot of the passages:

Set 1: Two narrative texts with a setting of Halloween. Both texts have the same theme.

Set 2: Two informational texts with tips for staying safe on Halloween. One text focuses on costume safety and one focuses on trick or treating safety.

Each paired passage set includes the following:

  • 4 constructed response questions that require information or knowledge from both texts.
  • A "Highlight Your Evidence" printable that requires the student to dig deeply into both texts to find evidence to support a conclusion.
  • A writing prompt that requires the students to integrate details from both texts.

The paired passages and the activities are available in THREE versions:

  • Traditional Worksheet Version
  • Interactive Notebook Version
  • Digital Version for Google Slides (see more details below)

About the Digital Halloween Paired Passages

The digital Halloween paired passages have been created for use with Google Slides.

The paired passages and practice pages have been redesigned in a horizontal format and with color.

The students will type their responses directly onto the slides. They will also use moveable semi-transparent yellow rectangles to highlight text evidence.

See the video preview for more details about the digital Halloween paired passages.
