Looking for reading passages with questions?

Each article includes:

  • Informational text page - With short articles, a sidebar chart, and illustrations, these readings resemble a magazine page.
  • One page of multiple choice questions - The questions are about text features, text structures, context clues, organizational elements, and comprehension of the informational text.
  • One analyze and respond activity.
