I don’t have a ton of time to write today — I’ve spent the past week teaching and learning alongside of some really progressive thinkers in Australia — so I figured I’d share a few handouts that I’ve been using in class this year to teach nonfiction reading skills in my sixth grade science classroom.

Each lesson is tied directly to a standard in the Common Core Literacy in History, Science and Technical Subjects curriculum — and each lesson is designed to be used in tandem with a current event connected to the concepts that our students study.  If you like the lessons, all you’ll need to do is find a current event to teach them with!
