    Matchup Gaps- #2, #5, #6, #7 These texts are bridging the gap between the supplementary/introductory texts that are designed for mismatches and ELL students and the more complex texts targeted at students with matchup assets. Some of the texts are included in both group because they have theme that relate directly to the topic of the Famine or can be probed deeper if students are so inclined.
    Mismatches and Non-Native English Speakers - #3, #9, #8, #10 These texts are selected because they use language and supplemental material such as videos, images, and audio to make them more accessible to students with insufficient background knowledge or language barriers.
    Using Texts Together:
    These texts would be utilized over the course of an entire unit exploring the political, social, and economic factors around the Irish Potato Famine and relating them to modern food shortage issues. A wide range of materials are included to ensure that students at all levels of comprehension and various learning styles are able to engage meaningfully with the material. All student would be reading all of the text in the set with some receiving supplemental support when necessary. Many of the texts would be used together in the same lesson, as previously discussed, and they would be ordered systematically to ensure that students were adequately armed with the background knowledge necessary to meaningfully interact the more difficult texts. Students would be guided by graphic organizers, group work, and educator assistance when appropriate.
