Work on having students understand the first passage. Spend a few days reading, annotating (use the digital tools!), and understanding the passage. Assess their understanding using the text dependent questions.
When students are ready, move on to the second passage. Read, discuss, annotate, and answer the questions.
Now you’re ready for the paired passages! Assign the paired passages and analyze the connections between the two texts using the text dependent questions.
After discussion your students are ready to answer the paired questions.
With a variety of genres, Classworks Integrated Reading activities are the perfect way to get your students excited to read with topics that appeal to them.
Classworks passages are lexile-leveled for grades one through eight and designed to build reading stamina. Plus, text-dependent questions help students achieve deep reading comprehension in-tune with your state’s standards.
