Common Core Setting Comparisons

I've spoken to many teachers who are searching for Common Core materials. Many have said that the professional development workshops they attended to prepare them for the Common Core didn't include specific resources they can use with their students.

For that reason, I designed this setting comparison packet so that it could be used with any book or story. 

Included are five setting selections from five different books. I selected books on different reading levels to accommodate a wide range of readers. 

The student friendly rubric helps students understand what's expected of them in a way that's easy for them to understand. 

The excerpts are from:
Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
The Indian and the Cupboard by Lynn Reid Banks
Gooney Bird is Absurd by Lois Lowry
Give Me Liberty by L.M Elliott
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
