This informational passage is great for using as a close reading. The text is fully aligned to the 6-8 ELA standards. (Can be easily adapted to higher grades.) It is a complete ready-to-use product with comprehension questions developed using Bloom's Higher Order Thinking Skills and extension activity.
The extension activity has the students synthesize the information and design a call-to-action campaign ad with grading rubric.
