Informational Text: The American Search for Utopia (CCSS)

This free, original Informational Text Activity is taken from my teaching pack for Gordon Korman’s popular book SCHOOLED.

The selected article–“The American Search for Utopia”– is designed to provide students with background information that will heighten their understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment for Mr. Korman’s story and its characters. However, it can also stand alone as a independent reading resource with social studies connections. The ten questions and the writing challenge are CCSS aligned for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, but this download is appropriate for some high school classrooms as well.
