These passages and assessments are ideal as part of a close reading program in your classroom based around mastery of the Common Core! What does that mean to you as a classroom teacher? It means that these are not the typical “one reading I'm done” comprehension work often given before the Common Core Standards were created. To complete the assessments for the passages, students will need "to undertake the close, attentive reading and re-reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying complex and worthy works.”
