As a precursor to a unit on innovation, such as a Rube Goldberg unit, use this close read to explore how science can be used to push our society further. This reading, which assesses students' ability to summarize main ideas, discusses Sweden's revolutionary practice of burning trash for fuel. Students will need to closely read the text, answer the scaffolded questions and summarize main ideas after reading. This assignment includes two differentiated versions for your different level readers. The B reading includes more scaffolded prompts and a chunked text!
