> Three types of questions:

  •   Short Response (complete sentences not required)
  •   Complete Response (complete sentences required)
  •   True/False

> The "Complete Response" questions are great for discussion as they're often reflective/no wrong answer style to encourage independent thinking and interpretation.

> Story review form is a career-long reusable (can be reused with no changes for stories, books, film, and epic poetry).

<>All resources are designed for struggling learners. Perfect modified or alternative resource for special education or below-level learners. Reading comprehension questions are not all higher order. Reflective & no wrong answer style questions encourage independent thought and discussion. Roughly 7-8th grade level.
