Description

Dive into genre study with this Colorful Close Reads pack for Shark Week!

The three passages (similar to paired passages) guide students through "stop and think" annotations, color-coding text evidence, and completing a written response to analyze genre. The focus on one specific skill (genre) is supported by general reading comprehension.

The passages in this pack all relate to shark attacks:
- a persuasive essay (opinion piece) defending sharks
- a biography of Bethany Hamilton, shark attack victim
- informational text (non-fiction) about shark attack statistics

Through this interesting topic, your students will enjoy engaging in higher-level thinking about the texts and their genres as they perform a close read.

Note: Passages are written at a grade level appropriate for about grades 3-5.
