This passage about U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson assesses fourth grade students on context clues, inferencing, and main idea. Includes an answer key, questions to post "around-the-room" if you need an activity to get kids up and out of the chair. Just print the 1-page passage for students and a single copy of the around-the-room questions and let them take their clipboards and walk around silently to answer the questions at different stations.
There's even a sheet of ballots for each question if you want to have students practice bubbling in their answer on the ballot and then drop it in an envelope at each station to "vote" for what they think is the best answer.
If you want to use it as an assessment, print all the pages 2-sided and you'll have a great, STAAR-formatted passage that will quickly let you know whether you fourth graders have grasped the objectives.
