  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This three-passage text set is accompanied by an informational prompt about a popular literary genre: historical fiction. It's a great assignment to start off a classroom unit on the historical fiction genre, as well as to address the popular student question of "why are we reading this?" In addition, it will help students work on the skill of finding and citing information from the text provided, rather than relying on their own prior knowledge or feelings about the given topic.

Modeled after AIR Testing, which is used in numerous states across the country, it would also fit well into a PARCC simulation. The text set, itself, is a little over 4 pages long.

As with all products sold by A Teacher's Teacher, I take great pride in providing materials in multiple forms. In the case of this item, you will receive the text set and prompt in a ready-to-use format for easy accessibility (.pdf) as well as a file that you can open and edit, to best fit for your own classroom needs (.docx). In addition, I have also provided the option to use a quick-sharing link for Google Docs, in case you use the Google Suite of Apps. All you'll have to do is open the Word or PDF file labeled for Google Docs, copy the link provided, and paste it into your web browser. From there, follow the directions on the Word document or PDF to save it to your Google Drive.

If you're interested in this informational text set and prompt, you might also find that other text sets in my store are of interest to you, including an informational text set on skydiving, an informational text set on mountain climbing, and several different argumentative text sets on a wide-range of topics. If you're looking for the best deal in my store (and I think across all of TpT), check out my Text Set MEGA Bundle. That item includes every current text set available in my store for one low price (50% off). Even better, your purchase will also grant you access to all future text sets added to my store (I will be adding a new set about every 1-2 months)! The MEGA Bundle price will slightly increase with every set added, the price you see now will be the best deal you'll ever find on that item!
