8 questions that are modeled after Questar, PARCC, & Smarter Balanced tests.
Students read portions from a speech and answer close reading questions (central idea, paradox, etc). There are also questions that require students to compare the speech with the short story, "The Leap."

This speech is funny and not too difficult to analyze, so I chose it as the first informational source the students will analyze. ("The Leap" is the first short story that they read.)
