This resource includes a biography of Rosa Parks written on 3 different reading levels, 1 page of text dependent questions (perfect for class discussion and/or writing prompts) and 1 page for students to complete independantly (using evidence from the article to support their answers).

This resource was was designed to maximize student success since it is offered on three different levels of text and vocabulary complexity. The differentiation is done for you! Students can be given their individual reading levels for morning work, homework or as a center. Use a challenging text in a small group or with your class for a shared reading or close reading experience! This is a great way to increase exposure to rigorous texts!

This biography set is part of a larger unit Black History Month Differentiated Passages -This Black History Month biography set will introduce your students to 12 influential African Americans throughout different times in American history. Each biography is differentiated and includes text dependent questions and writing prompts.

This freebie can also be found in my Black History Month BUNDLE This HUGE Black History unit offers differentiated biographies, writing prompts, biography briefs (to be used for bulletin boards and/or student research projects) and more!
