Nonfiction Close Reading - The Holidays: A Bit More Giving, A Bit Less Getting

This nonfiction close reading focuses on a New York Times article titled "The Holidays: A Bit More Giving, A Bit Less Getting." A great reading to get students thinking about their own values during the holiday season whether they celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa and engage students in those last crazy days before winter break. After reading, students will use evidence to answer text-based questions, which cover nine of ten of the Common Core Informational Standards. Students will also have a choice of engaging after reading activities, including service learning and project based learning activities.
