After teaching our standards, we must constantly review what we've taught so that our students retain the information. Additionally, we must provide them with opportunities to engage in one-sitting readings, respond to questions, and complete an extended response item. This product gives them this opportunity!
Students will read the story of Hansel and Gretel, respond to 14 multiple choice questions (that are worded similarly to questions on the new generation of assessments), and complete an extended response item. Students then have an opportunity to examine an exemplar response, which has been analyzed three different ways, once for ideas, then for organization, and finally for style, voice, and language skills. An answer key, grading rubric, and quick comments response sheet are included.
Installment one uses the story of Hansel and Gretel. I used this fairy tale for the following reasons:
1. Students must be familiar with fairy tales so that they understand allusions to fairy tales in other literary works.
2. The reading level is 5.3. This makes it just the right level to help students with their fluency, as reading passages used in fluency work shouldn’t be too complicated. They will also be able to really understand the questions that are being asked.
