This set of differentiated reading passages was created to help students learn about Jesse Owens on their level! Included in this set are three passages geared towards low, average, and high readers. Each passage has been aligned to a Lexile level (600, 820, 1160), and has a unique set of corresponding comprehension questions. All answer keys are included.
These reading passages could easily be used to introduce the life and accomplishments of Jesse Owens, or be used as an assessment, based on your classroom needs. Students could complete the reading and questions independently, with a partner, in a group, as part of a station/center activity, or even for homework. The possibilities are endless!
