Product Description
This product contains several resources about famous athletes to help you teach, review, and assess CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.5.8.

RI.5.8 says students should, "Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s)."

This product contains the following resources:

Lesson Progression
Suggestions about how you can use these resources to teach an engaging lesson on RI.5.8.

Reading Response Questions
These questions require students to explain whether or not details from the text support the author’s main point.
