This product is ready to print and use today! In those hectic days before Christmas break, it's always nice to have a movie day...but of course you don't want to lose instructional time. This study guide is here to save the day!
Questions align with the 7th grade Common Core standards for reading literature (but due to the spiraling nature of the standards, it works well for grades 6-8). All questions are short-response, so students must think critically. Questions relate to conflict, recurring theme, symbolism, and contrasting written vs video version of a text.
There is a short-constructed response, which includes a template to guide students in organizing their paragraph (a perfect scaffold for English learners or special ed students). I have also included a sample SCR in the answer key. SCR is a big part of the SBAC, so you can even say this is test prep if your admin walks in...what more can you ask for?! :)
