This three-passage text set is accompanied by an informational prompt regarding the topic of skydiving. It's a perfect assignment to engage typically apathetic students, as well as those students who are typically successful in your classroom, while still relying on the skills of using the information in the text set.
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).
If you're interested in this informational text set and prompt, as well as an additional text set and prompt on an argumentative topic (the use of Romeo and Juliet in the curriculum), look in my products for the value-priced bundle with both items.
