PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Gold Rush
Westward Expansion

Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate social studies and science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these Westward Expansion: Gold Rush differentiated reading passages and comprehension questions. In this product, there is a nonfiction-reading passage (differentiated 3 levles) based on the Westward Expansion: Gold Rush, and what the Georgia Standards say students should know and understand about it. If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. There are also ten higher-order thinking comprehension questions that correspond with the passages that includes an answer key.
