This product is created for 6th grade, but the activities could be transferable to 7th and 8th grade since many of the standards are parallel.



The following standards are addressed with this resource.

Compare and contrast the experience of reading a story, drama, or poem to listening to or viewing an audio, video, or live version of the text, including contrasting what they “see” and “hear” when reading the text to what they perceive when they listen or watch.
Compare and contrast a written story, drama, or poem to its audio, filmed, staged, or multimedia version, analyzing the effects of techniques unique to each medium (e.g., lighting, sound, color, or camera focus and angles in a film).
Analyze the extent to which a filmed or live production of a story or drama stays faithful to or departs from the text or script, evaluating the choices made by the director or actors.

Are answer keys included?

Yes. The answer keys are included as the last pages of the resource download.

Do all the activity worksheets need to be completed all at once, or can I split it up?

You could certainly split this up into multiple days/activities. Especially with the long resources. Some activities are easy to split into three “activities”. First, cold read (could be a partner read) w/vocab and multiple choice questions. Second, re-read and summary page. Third, choose one writing activity. You could even do stations. Maybe partner read first, then one station does the vocabulary and summary page. Another station could do the multiple choice, and you could do a teacher-led station with one writing prompt. Then, you can have a fourth station independently write the other prompt. Of course, you know your students better than I do! These are just some ideas!! I try to section out the activities, so you have the freedom to make it work for you!

Is a digital version included?

Yes, all resources within this product line includes a digital version that uses Google Apps.

What is the Lexile level of your reading passages?

Since Lexile is trademarked, I am unable to label them as Lexile levels. However, I have used the free Lexile analyzer and I stay within the recommended grade level range. If there is a specific reading packet that you need details for, please contact me directly and I’ll give you a more specific range.
