This product assesses a student's ability to close read a short passage from Ray Bradbury's short story "All Summer in a Day"! After carefully reading the given passage, students mush answer a text-dependent question that follows each passage with POQIA (Part of Question in Answer). Finally, they must select a quotation from the passage that supports their response. This is a great tool to introduce the concept of citing evidence to support inferential answers in a low-pressure environment. I've also found that students better understand the text after reviewing the answers to these questions.
I have included five short passages from Bradbury's text, along with six short answer questions! This Microsoft Word Document is easily adaptable, so feel free to use the questions as you see fit or change the nature of the assessment!
