    Within the 20 passages, there are three sets of paired passages (TT 1/2, TT 12/13, and 16/17) and a multiple paired passages (6/7/8). The paired passages appear adjacent to each other and address a similar topic for comparing and contrasting. An additional printable is included to use with these paired passages. These passages will also work as stand alone activities if you do not want to use them together.

    The skills addressed in each passage are written in small print at the bottom on the left hand side. The skills address most of the RI and RL Common Core Standards and include: reading for details, main idea, summarizing, inference, predicting, genre setting/character/plot, theme, context clues/vocabulary, figurative language, author’s style, author’s purpose, point of view, mood/tone, text structure, comparing and contrasting, interpreting an illustration, analysis, and evaluation. They are also listed in the Table of Contents.
