1 Differentiated Ulysses S. Grant Reading Passages Created By: Bow Tie Guy 2015

2 A Note From The Seller: I have found that integrating whenever and wherever possible is a great way to make sure that I am addressing all of the Common Core Standards and giving my students enough practice to reach mastery in each skill. Since close reading is my new favorite thing, I have decided to create differentiated close reading passage s based on different subjects that children would deem intere sting, or topic s that I need to cover anyway. Many systems and states do close reading differently, so I have left the specifics for marking up the passage out. Instead of having the levels on the passages where students can see the numbers, I have decided to put a shape to designate which level it is in the top right-hand corner. They are also included in the product in this order. A circle designates low. Lexile: 670 GRL: P A triangle designates mid. Lexile: 780 GRL: S A square designates high. Lexile: 880 GRL: V Acknowledgements & Terms of Use: Thank you so much for purchasing this product. Please me at if you have any questions or would like to request additional topics.
