This excellent resource is a collection of 15 resources for 5th and 6th graders aligned to Common Core. There are poems and informational texts with accompanying questions. Some materials are designed to be used for test preparation for Common Core. The texts vary from known works to current events passages. Many provide answer keys. All require close reading and/or citing evidence in the text. Some of the resources in this collection provide direction on how to write questions and how to choose appropriate reading material. There is also an external link to a Language Arts website where more reading materials can be accessed.
