Product Description:

This book contains a group of texts organized around a common topic. A main or "anchor" text introduces the topic, then the other texts in each set relate to the topic in some way (using a variety of genres). For example, Text 6 asks the question, "Why Explore Space?" There are a couple of video transcript articles, an opinion article, an online article and an editorial. Finally, there is a graphic organizer at the end of each text set, which students can use to organize their opinions and discussion. Each topic encourages students to examine and compare information, and thought-provoking questions are located at the end of each document to increase critical thinking skills. The book is divided into three thematic sections: Kids and School, Current Events, and Historical Events. Activity suggestions are also included to help students see things from different points of view. Because comparative reading is an important skill and emphasized in the Common Core State Standards, this book will help students practice reading a variety of nonfiction texts and use text evidence to answer higher-level questions. A Common Core correlation chart is also listed in the front of the book. ~ Gina
