Product Description

These biographies are paragraphs featuring 20 important individuals in Texas history. Each passage is one page and consists of one paragraph of informational text with 4 multiple choice comprehension questions. The questions are modeled after the types of questions on standardized reading tests and include a variety of reading skills. You can prepare for state testing and get social studies grades at the same time!

15 of these individuals are specifically required in the Grade 4 Social Studies TEKS, making them great for 4th grade Texas classrooms. The other 5 are extras of my choosing. The paragraphs are high-interest, filled with academic vocabulary, and quite rigorous despite their short length. The measured reading levels on most texts range from 4th-6th, so your lowest readers may need extra support and teacher guidance. Purchase with confidence, as I have 32 years of experience preparing students for standardized reading testing.

Please check out the preview to determine if these passages would be suitable for your students.
