I've always wanted to read about Malcolm X with my students but had trouble finding a biography that was both truthful and age-appropriate. I created this one and used it with my 3rd grade students. It led to insightful conversations and excellent writing.
This purchase includes a biography of Malcolm X and corresponding reading comprehension questions. The questions include multiple choice as well as questions that must be answered in complete sentences.
4 additional writing prompts are included. My students enjoyed all of them, but I would say my personal favorite required students to use Google to research Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and compare and contrast him with Malcolm X. I love that prompt because the students produced excellent below-the-surface writing and I am always looking for more ways to incorporate technology into the classroom.
Answer key is included.
