I give short literacy quizzes every 2 to 3 weeks over the content that we are covering in class. These quizzes are usually 10 multiple choice questions and consist of 3 parts:
- CER (claim, evidence, reasoning) where students read a short paragraph, identify the claim and then support it with evidence and reasoning
- Literacy where students read a short passage and use their background knowledge to answer two questions
- Vocabulary where students match the definition to content vocab words
These quizzes are word documents and can be edited to fit the needs of your classroom.
*** This quiz covers the following content: characteristics (climate, temperature, precipitation, location relative to the equator) or desert, taiga, tundra, grassland, deciduous forest, and tropical rainforest.
