6 activities that can be pared with any text to help students understand complex reading passages on their end of course and state assessments in English. I use these for 10th grade.
My students rush into their reading passages too quickly and blindly. They miss half of what they read because they do not do a good job of pre-reading and figuring out the content of the passage. Therefore, I have created these 6 activities that you can pare with any text you find to help students notice important details and build a frame of understanding around the text.
These activities are creative and designed to be fun/interesting to help engage the students in difficult texts. Students will appreciate the comical wording and benefit from the learning.
