What this resource is all about

Click here for a short video explaining this kind of resource.

The passage in this resource is titled: The History of Video Games - an interesting, current topic, especially considering the popularity of Pokémon GO ®!

The purpose of this resource is to provide ready-to-go informational texts and engaging higher order thinking questions.

This resource is jam-packed with exciting, thought-provoking activities to grab your students’ attention AND hold it. The activities begin at the lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy (Remember, Understand, Apply) and move through to the higher levels (Analyze, Evaluate, Create).

Students are also exposed to a range of graphic organizers 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!
