NO PREP, PRINT AND GO Close Reading passages that focus on important people from Indiana - now you can teach Social Studies during Reading!
In this close reading pack, you will get biographies of people from or closely related to Indiana. I tried to choose people that were more current in history and that they could either relate to or might have heard of.
People in this list include: Madam C.J. Walker, Jim Davis, Michael Jackson, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, and David Letterman.
Each passage has 2 or 3 pages of questions to go with it. Two passages have text dependent and vocabulary questions. Three passages have CCRA style questions based on the preview of the new CCRA test. There are also 3 graphic organizers and notes pages that you can use with all of the passages.
These are great for homework, guided reading, whole group instruction, small pull out/push in groups, or sub plans.
