Research shows that when writing is incorporated in learning and assessment, there is increased opportunity to produce the ideal situation for active, attentive learning. Not to mention that students in the very near future will be expected to answer questions on state and national reading assessments in a written format. That means, students are going to have to do more writing in response to reading to show their reading proficiency. This also means, as classroom teachers, students must be writing more, on a daily basis, in both content areas AND in self-selected topic areas, than ever before. The reciprocal relationship between reading and writing is well-documented in reading research and brain research, but often teachers have students spend more time reading than writing.

At a time in education where teachers must balance time and best practices without sacrificing too much of either...I have created what has been for me, both a time-saving reading comprehension assessment tool and a way to identify next steps for ELA instruction when using the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS), Kit 2, for reading levels L-Z, an ELA assessment system used by many schools for gaining a reading comprehension score via an oral reading record and an oral retelling conversation. (F&P BAS Kits sold separately through Heinemann).

Here's what I have done.

Using the titles included in the F&P BAS Kit 2, I have written one written comprehension assessment per book that includes two written comprehension questions per assessment. 15 fiction assessments and 15 nonf-fiction assessments. Each assessment also includes an Answer Key for a total of 30 answer keys. See product thumbnails for an example of the written comprehension assessments plus the answer keys provided.

PLEASE NOTE: This product is only going to be of value to you if you CURRENTLY use or have access to the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System, Kit 2 (Level L-Z). This product works with either the 1st Edition of the 2nd Edition of the kit.

In addition to these written comprehension assessments, I have also written a set of multiple-choice assessments for each title in the BAS Kit 2, which are available for purchase by CLICKING HERE.
