PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need to add non-fiction into a unit on Romeo & Juliet? Want to pull modern, debatable topics alongside the play to keep kids interested?

Use this 2-day lesson connecting literature and modern articles to assess CCSS RI.1, RI.2, and RI.4 in your ELA classroom. Themed around the question “What’s the BEST age to get married?”, the articles and corresponding questions ask students to read and evaluate the points made by authors and the studies they cite as evidence.

In this EDITABLE doc from my “Nonfiction about Lit” series, ask students to read all three articles OR assign students to articles (jigsaw-style) to differentiate your instruction.

This 3-page lesson includes:
• Clearly marked standards with a rubric
• Context and step-by-step directions
• Hyperlinks to 3 complex articles, each with a different viewpoint on the “best” age
• Summary prompts AND 2 text-dependent question per article asking about vocab in context and points made in their arguments
• 4 synthesis questions that ask students to identify patterns across the texts
• Before and After checks to see if student opinions change as a result of the readings
• An extra credit option
• An answer key
