Can you tell me how to save this without the answer pages?
If you have Google Chrome, you can print pages 1-4 as a PDF (select "save as PDF" as your printer) and you can then save just the 4 pages. Put 1-4 in the page range for printing. There are other ways, but this is the easiest. Hope this helps!
Hi Jenn. At the moment there is not a way to download a reading passage and question set without the answer key. But that will change soon. In the meantime, you can also delete the answer key pages with a PDF editor after downloading and saving the document to your computer. I hope this helps.
Is there a Common Core lesson plan for this passage?

Hi Eddie. While there is not a specific lesson for this particular passage, you could use it as an additional resource with the lessons linked in our comment below.

Importantly, these question sets are meant to be instructional tools. I'd like to direct you to more information about the question sets (click here) as well as an annotated question set (click here).

Please know that we are in the process of making changes to the website to better provide standards alignment information at the individual passage and question set level. It is a work in progress and will take some time, so thank you for your patience. However, in the meantime, it is important to note that most of the passages and question sets meet Anchor Standards 1, 4, 5, and 10.

What would be a good lesson to pair this with?

This text and question set may work well as an additional resource to build background knowledge with The Watsons Go to Birmingham--1963 novel study unit, or the When Marian Sang: The True Recital of Marian Anderson comprehension unit.

I followed Lynn's instruction and I still don't see answers to the questions.
I'm so sorry for the technical difficulties. Are you by any chance using Chrome for Mac? There is a known issue with the PDF plug-in that distorts the bold font of the correct multiple choice answers. Can you try downloading and saving the document to your computer and seeing if they show up correctly then? You could also try using a different browser.
That was the case. Thanks for the information.
where are the answers to this reading
when you open the pdf scroll down toward the bottom and the question and answers are there.
very innovative qestions.
