Use the brief reading comprehension passages during your Native American unit of study. The 8 reading selections provide great supplemental information for the 4 main Native American regions in North America as well as strengthen reading skills.
Assign the reading passages as bell ringers, add them to the end of an assessment, or assign as homework a few days a week to improve comprehension. The short reading passages provide quick review practice for close reading and standardized tests.
