This practice AIR ELA Test deals with the newly opened National Memorial for Peace and Justice. It can be used as a stand-alone test prep activity or as a tie-in with To Kill a Mockingbird or other piece of American literature that addresses lynching. Students will read two articles about the memorial presenting two different points of view, as well as analyze the memorial's website (if they have internet access). Included as a bonus are also two video links to add further insight into the opening of the museum. 12 Multiple Choice questions and one writing prompt are included, as well as a bonus writing prompt to use with the videos. Answer key for the MC questions and a rubric for the written assessments are provided. This Word Doc is editable, and there is a link to the Student Questions as a Google Doc and a Google Form included as well.
