I am very grateful for all the work you have done and put onto this site!! The nonfiction text has text features, great vocabulary, and is at interest level for my sixth graders. The only problem is the level of questions asked is very basic and do not really align with common core. The questions need to delve deeper into the text.
Hi Mrs. T. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. The passages on this unit page are focused on genre, and therefore can be useful for remediation with students who are having a difficult time understanding different genres. I would like to point you to more information about our new question sets. We created these text-based question sets based on reading comprehension research with the intention of guiding students to support conclusions and answers with evidence, examine the organization of the text, and determine the use of author's craft or meaning of vocabulary in the passage. In addition, we sequence questions to scaffold student understanding of the important information and main idea of the passage.
