This product includes everything you need to provide differentiated instruction on point of view. There are three different topics included. Each topic includes a close read passage (with 3 different Lexile levels provided to increased differentiation), text dependent questions about the point of views in the passage, a graphic organizer and an opinion writing prompt where students write their own point of view.
The topics included are:
Should the game of dodge ball be allowed in schools?
Should children be allowed on social-networking sites?
Should children receive an allowance for completing chores?
Each passage is included in three Lexile levels: one in the 700s, one in the 800s and one in the 900s. This allows all students to read about the same topic, but at a level appropriate for their learning. I wrote these specifically for my 3rd graders, but the higher level passages make them appropriate for 4th and 5th graders as well.
These can be used in guided reading groups, in reading centers, as bell work, as homework or as an assessment. Students can complete in groups, with partners, or individually.
