This is one of a series of five SAT Prep Reading Strategy activities that assess students' abilities to answer different SAT style questions. In this activity, students read a biography of Thoreau and a selection from Walden and answer five (5) SAT questions on literal comprehension. I've added a PowerPoint that complements this worksheet which provides step by step process of elimination to arrive at the answers for students. I've also added PowerPoint notes on Thoreau and Transcendentalism. Enjoy.
