This CCSS-aligned test for Nikki Grimes' The Bronx Masquerade is UPDATED and perfect for your end-of-unit. Students practice identifying literary elements and using analytical skills. This includes two multiple-choice question sections, each based on a short passage from the novel. It also includes a graphic organizer, asking students to identify conflict in the novel. Finally, students answer four short essay questions, backing up their opinions with textual evidence. Answer key included!
**Now includes an editable version for your convenience.**
CCSS: Assesses RL 1, 3, and 4 for grades 6-8.
Here’s an example:
4. What connotation does the word flung have in these lines?
It means that Leslie is angry and wants to show it.
It means that Leslie is violent and wants the locker to hit Porscha.
It means that Leslie wants to break her locker to scare Porscha.
It means that Leslie is weak and has to open her locker with force.
I used this as a test for a low-performing 8th grade class with many struggling readers, ELL & EC students. In a standard section, I would use this more as a quiz to practice the NC End-of-Grade style of questions.
