Fact and Opinion

Reading comprehension with a twist. With these 40 graded comprehension passages you'll always be able to find a motivational text to help students to distinguish fact from opinion. Practically supplied in order of increasing difficulty, these little treasures cover reading levels Entry Level 1 to Level 1 (reading ages 6-12). Complete with instructions, teaching tips and answer card.

Your students will be able to evaluate texts better if they learn to distinguish between fact (statements that can be proved true) and opinion (statements that express judgements or ideas). The passages and questions in this set of cards will help to boost your students’ skills in distinguishing between fact and opinion.

The front of each card contains a title and an introductory sentence – so you can start by asking students to predict what the text may be about. The passage is on page two with questions facing on page three. This allows your student to scan the passage to answer the questions, rather than needing to flip a card over. The questions are all multiple-choice – the student has to choose the single best answer from the content of the passage.

Here’s an example of what to expect from an Entry Level 2 card (reading age 8.2):


Use the title and introductory sentence to discuss what the text may be about.



Passage on the left. Multiple-choice answers on the right.

Printed on card, as a multisensory alternative to book format, the cards open up to measure 300mm x 100mm.

The clear typeface is 11 point size. Students say the neat presentation makes Comps feel ‘grown-up’ compared to more typical SEN materials.
