This four-passage text set is accompanied by an informational prompt regarding the topic of global warming. It's a great assignment to engage students and help them 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 5 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.
