J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Looking for informational text and/or a way to introduce students to The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings? This resource includes:
--- two reading passages about the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien. Each passage includes four vocabulary words for students to define.
--- a page of questions (assessing comprehension as well as allowing students to express opinions while citing evidence) is included;
--- an additional vocabulary page to help students “extend” their word bank. For this activity, students define each word and then apply that word to what they have read about Tolkien. The first three words are from the first passage, and the last three from the second passage, but they are not in any particular order. An example is provided for the student;
--- a full answer key is provided.
