These Read Like a Detective passages were developed because I needed a way to teach each of these standards with comprehension questions. My district has modeled their assessments for primary students after the PARCC frameworks so my students need a lot of practice with these types of evidence based multiple-choice questions.
As an ELA curriculum writer for my district, I have scoured the internet for resources to teach the Reading Literature and Reading Informational text standards. There is almost nothing for primary students-especially RI.8,9!
These 50 texts will provide passages for teachers to use when teaching these standards as well as examples of questions to ask during readings that will allow students to justify with evidence from the text.
Here is what is included in the bundle:
-10 passages that focus on RL.2& RI.2
Students will practice retelling text with key details. There are 5 literary texts and 5 informative/explanatory texts including a how-to and a recipe.
10 paired passages that focus on RI.9
Students will find similarities and differences between two texts on the same topic.
10 Differentiated Opinion Passages that focus on RI.8 20 passages total!
The best part is that I have included 2 levels of opinion pieces with/ without details/explanations for each support. This will allow for differentiation as well as the opportunity to use the passages as a writing lesson for students who are ready to add details/explanations to their supports. In order to write opinion pieces well, students need to have read many opinion pieces and studied the structure of this type of writing.
10 passages that focus on RL.3
These passages will allow teachers to teach students to describe characters, setting and events. These passages also include developed characters that will allow students to describe a character’s traits and justify with evidence from the text. Most primary texts do not have well developed characters so teaching this skill is difficult unless done during a read aloud. Central message is also reinforced in these passages.
