Students Interact With History at Their Reading Level With My Age Of Exploration Differentiated Readings
I love reading, and as an educator, you probably do to. But, as hard as it is for us to fathom, a lot of our students don't. Some of them don't because they just haven't found the book that really inspires them to become readers (mine was Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth Speare), some are too into technology and only like to read in 140 character chunks, and some don't because they truly struggle with it. My differentiated readings can help with all of these reluctant readers!
All of my differentiated reading sets come with three interesting, short and easy to understand readings. It also includes three readings written in a bigger font and at an easier reading level for struggling readers. Each reading also comes with a content/reading comprehension question sheet that helps your students identify critical content and make connections to it while providing an opportunity for students to work on reading strategies.
This week I'm highlighting my Age of Exploration Differentiated Readings. The three topics included are 1) Navigation, 2) Christopher Columbus, and 3) First Contact. Each topic has a middle school and upper elementary school leveled reading on each topic that covers the exact same content.
So, click the links below for my Age of Exploration Differentiated Readings, and an earlier blog post about differentiated readings. If you like it, it's also available as part of a bundle of European Colonization Differentiated Readings that cover everything from The Age of Exploration to the Civil War. Also, be sure to check out and follow my store for more great American History resources!
