How do you assess your students in reading workshop? Do your assessments balance the work you do in class AND the expectations your students will be held to on school or state tests? This resource provides a Common Core Aligned pre and post assessment and were designed to be paired with the 6th grade Turning Every Kid Into A Reader unit of study in the Lucy Calkins reading workshop curriculum. This multiple choice and extended response assessment was created collaboratively with the intention of being used as a common assessment. A rubric is included, which can be used in a variety of ways throughout the unit for self, peer, and teacher assessments of the students' progress. In addition, the texts are provided for each assessment along with the answer keys.
