Are your students ready to tackle paired passages and combine all of those reading skills they've worked so hard to master? This is THE resource you need! This paired passage resource has been thoughtfully created to teach students how to integrate information from two different fiction stories.

Each set (2 sets included) includes a set of paired passages, annotation guides for each passage, and text-based comprehension questions for each passage. Each set also includes six additional pages of extensive paired passage tasks that require students to Analyze, Apply, Evaluate, and Create based on the paired passages (please see the preview for sample pages). Each of the two sets includes 10 printables pages for a total of 20 printable pages of substantial content.

This resource is perfect for review, test prep, and teaching paired passages. It is recommended for grades 4+.

There are two formatting options for this resource. You can choose to print and cut out the tabs (as pictured), or you can print a full page option and staple them together for easier prep. I recommend completing each of these sets over the course of one week.

These are completely black and white with the exception of one image on each cover page.

Suggested answers included for answers that are not opinion-based.
