PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Test Prep Non-Fiction Three Tiers! Writing! Add a differentiated non-fiction reading comprehension test to your arsenal of tools as you prepare for state assessments.

Introduce the non-fiction topic to your class with a video discussing the project the article is written about.

The non-fiction article explains an ancient recipe discovered in a Medieval Text shelved in Nottingham's Institute. The Viking Studies Professor who found it translated the recipe and turned it over to the science department. The result of the experiments is a possible weapon against Modern Superbugs. A new science called AncientBiotics results from this discovery.

The science-related article is differentiated into three tiers. Level A is 10th grade and up, Level B is 9th grade, and Level C is 6th grade. The reading level is not identified on the individual pages so you may divide the class into three groups without them knowing that they are tiered for grade 10 and up, grade 9, and grade 6.

Word docx and PDF are provided for Text A, Text B, and Text C.

The writing prompt is the same for all three levels but is labeled A, B, and C.

I have provided sample student answers (which I wrote) for a constructed response rubric that is used for 2 point state assessment questions.

You may have your students evaluate the writing samples provided with the rubric either in small groups or individually.

A powerpoint presentation will allow you to project the student writing samples for large group discussion of the writing evaluation.

Students will take multiple-choice quizzes in A, B, and C. Some of the questions are modeled after the new state assessment in which students have 8 answers and chose 2. Other questions are standard multiple-choice, but focus on inference and analysis. Answer keys are provided.
