If you’re looking for an engaging, efficient way to practice or assess author and character perspective, this is it! This print-and-go set of 5 comprehension passages (specifically written to assess or practice author and character perspective) AND questions will help you effectively target author and character perspective with your students! Each of the 5 passages comes in 3 different reading levels: below, on, and above grade level (with 3rd grade being the “on grade level” passage). This way, students all get the same text exposure and comprehension questions, but at a level they can read independently. This author and character perspective passage set comes with original fiction and nonfiction passages. Answer keys included!
Anonymous differentiation is used in this passage set. A star represents the above-grade level text, a circle represents the on-grade level text, and a square represents the below-grade level text!
These passages make for great: differentiated homework, small group work, whole group teaching, reading centers, reading warm ups, and more! Even better, every file comes in digital form! These digital files are compatible with Google Slides, Google Classroom, and PowerPoint.
Using cold reads (unfamiliar texts) is the perfect way to determine a student’s true ability to comprehend. These passages were written specifically to support the reading skill or strategy they are assessing, and to make your job easier as a teacher–simply print and GO, no prep needed!
