9781935468486: Reading Informational Texts, Book IV: Nonfiction Passages and Exercises Based on the Common Core State Standards (Student Edition)

Take Rigorous, Standards-Based Nonfiction Study to a Higher Level

Reading Informational Texts eliminates the need for hours of outside research and provides you with exactly what the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) require: challenging selections that will give your students vital practice with nonfiction works.

The student workbooks provide rigorous, direct student instruction and contain a variety of reading passages, including both difficult-to-find and well known historical, legal, and scientific works, selected using the CCSS-designated methods. To help your students get the most out of what they are reading, each passage is accompanied by brief background materials, helpful margin notes and questions, and contextually defined vocabulary words.

Using this book, you can guide your students through a close reading of each work, challenge them with short-answer and essay questions, and ultimately help them gain the skills necessary to read and understand any work of nonfiction.

Passages included:

* G. K. Chesterton s The Fallacy of Success

* H. L. Mencken's The American Language, Chapter I (The Diverging Streams of English)

* Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Parts I-VII

* Mary Wollstonecraft s Vindication of the Rights of Woman, Chapter I (The rights and involved duties of mankind considered)

* Justice John Marshall Harlan's dissenting opinion in the case of Plessy v. Ferguson
