If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this free packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful mini unit on Ruby Bridges.
The informational passage on Ruby Bridges is provided in two differentiated Lexile levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. The Lexile level is given for each passage. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!
This packet includes:
• Ruby Bridges Informational Passage (Lexile Levels 810 & 930)
• 5 Close Reading Activities
• Answer Keys
This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned.
Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities. The reading passage and its corresponding activities offer a full-week's worth of close reading.
