Product Description
This Native Americans and Early People unit with passages and questions and is perfect for guided reading and reading comprehension. It contains 122 pages and includes original close reading passages, text dependent questions, vocabulary cards and essential questions for everything needed to teach a rigorous unit on Native Americans and Early Americans.

Original CLOSE Reading nonfiction passages were created to help teach your students about Native Americans. CLOSE reading instructions and an anchor chart are included to help you incorporate this skill into your teaching. There are text dependent questions aligned with each passage, a set of vocabulary cards with definitions to accompany each nonfiction text, Common Core Essential Questions, performance tasks, etc. A variety of other graphic organizers and activities are included. This unit emphasizes "Depth of Knowledge" (D.O.K.) throughout.

We do encourage you to supplement with any other books, videos, and websites that you already use; they will blend nicely with our CLOSE reading passages. You can use this unit in its entirety, or “pick and choose” the components to meet the needs of your students.

This unit contains the following elements:

• CLOSE reading nonfiction passages:
1. Passage One – Early People and Civilizations in North America
2. Passage Two – The Eastern Woodlands
3. Passage Three – The Plains
4. Passage Four – The West and Southwest
5. Passage Five – The Northwest and the Arctic
• Vocabulary cards with definitions for each CLOSE reading passage
• CLOSE Reading Instructions PowerPoint (or handout) explaining the steps of CLOSE Reading
• Anchor Charts for student annotation and Discussion Topics for CLOSE Reading
• “Text Dependent Questions”, to be used after all passages are read; this is intended as a summative assessment, or practice in citing textual evidence and giving examples from the reading of nonfiction text
• Common Core Essential questions (to be used after all passages are read, can be used as a summative assessment or a performance task)
• Cognitive Content Dictionary (to be made into a “book” for student vocabulary words, definitions, and pictures
• KWL Chart ( you can use this at the beginning of the unit to ascertain what they may already know about the California Missions)
• Venn Diagram to compare and contrast similarities and differences.
• A Tree Map Graphic Organizer (a grammar component for students to analyze the words in the passages and their parts of speech)
