This is a 3-5 day classwork pack. In these lessons, we slowed down to do a deep reading to answer literal questions and critical thinking questions. The literal questions were main idea and summarizing and the critical question was based on text structure. Included are the teacher keys and the teacher’s annotations for the literal questions and the text structure questions. I taught this in preparation for PARCC and practicing non-fiction skills. In this classwork packet is an article based on space exploration from Scholastic. If you have any questions, please contact me. My students had a blast with this!
