Guglielmo Marconi invented the wireless telegraph and broadcast the first transatlantic radio signal. December 12, 1901, he sent his first Atlantic wireless transfer. The differentiated passages and comprehension questions discuss the life and accomplishments of Marconi. These passages are completely stand alone and appropriate for any day of the year, however nonfiction passages are based on an event which occurred on this day in history. Mix and match by purchasing the topics you want or save with monthly bundles and give your students daily opportunities to develop background knowledge and improve their comprehension. A passage is available for each school day from September to May.

Passages have been evaluated using a minimum of 5 different readability formulas. The first passage is the most challenging, with an average reading level of 9th-10th grade. The second passage has an average readability of 8th grade. The third passage averages a 6th-7th grade level. With teacher introduction and background information, the passages have been used successfully with younger readers. All three passages contain the same basic information.

One subject for the class with differentiated passages allows the teacher to discuss, develop background knowledge, show a video clip or engage the full class yet provide for individual differences.

Questions for each passage appear in standardized test format, helping students to prepare for high-stakes testing. Each passage contains these types of questions

 Main idea

 Vocabulary

 Organizational patterns

 Inference

 Summarizing

Students and teachers using multiple passages can assess student progress. Diagnostic charting shows teachers and students patterns of errors with main idea, vocabulary, organizational patterns, inference, and summarization. Compiling data is easy and motivating with student completed charts.

Included in the lesson:

➢ A nonfiction passage written at three different grade levels

➢ Questions over the passage for each level.

➢ An answer key

➢ A chart to monitor progress and collect data in the five assessed areas (main idea, vocabulary, organizational patterns, inference, and summarizing)

All student pages may be found in the preview. Please take a look and be certain this is a good match for your student before purchasing. The answer key is only available in the purchased download.
