4-Page Lesson Progression
Suggestions about how you can use these resources to teach an engaging lesson on RI.4.8.

Informational Passage #2
One informational text about famous basketball player Michael Jordan. The passage is 507 words and is written at a fourth-grade reading level.

Skill Practice Questions
Six short-answer questions that require students to decide if details from the text support the author’s main point.

Two Writing Prompts
The first prompt asks students to use evidence from the passages to argue whether LeBron or Jordan is better. The second prompt asks students to decide if the author proved his main point with quality text evidence.
