Your persuasive reading comprehension passages are here! Expose your students to this required reading component with fun and interesting advertisements! As Common Core is adopted, you will see that many of the Common Core objectives tie into the use of persuasive text as well. It can be very difficult to find persuasive reading passages to use in instruction, but look no further! I offer many choices here in my store. Want to save money? Buy the passages bundled together in my “Comprehending Persuasive Text” book that can be found here in my store as well. In the bundle, you will get all 13 passages at a reduced rate from buying each separately.
The comprehension questions are very thorough and cover text type, persuasive words, language concepts, and more. The last several questions for each advertisement have students synthesizing and creating their own ideas in support of higher level thinking. These questions would be a great extension for your Gifted Students. An answer key is included as well.
Please check out the "Preview File" for a “Helpful Strategies” page that will give you several ideas and activities to use with any of my persuasive text pages.
Don't delay! Your students will love these high interest reading passages.
