Product Description
Are you sure your students have the Common Core reading skills they need? Using this assessment for John Collier's short story "The Chaser," can help you to easily see where your students strengths and weaknesses are for Common Core Reading for Literature standards 8.1-8.4.

The purchase includes
--an engaging quickwrite for pre-reading "The Chaser" (the students love to hear each others' answers)
--the full text of the short story with built-in boxes for students to record their thoughts and questions about the text as they are reading (you can then use the students' thoughts and questions about each section of text to lead a discussion about the story)
--and an assessment for after reading the story with an answer key.

There are four tasks on the assessment handout. Each one is directly aligned to one Common Core Reading for Literature standard. When I designed and started using this format, it became very clear to me which skills were posing the biggest problems for students.

Now I use them throughout the year, and I ALWAYS see progress. Students who don't get theme (message), get it after we have done several of these practice papers; students who can't figure out how language impacts meaning do by the end of the year.

This story can be used around Valentine's Day, but there is also an element of horror in it, so I like to use it at Halloween before we read "The Tell-Tale Heart."
