Product Description
Looking for a way to connect your novel study to the reading concepts you’ve been teaching all year? Feel like you have to choose between a rich, meaningful novel study or some much-needed test-prep? With these quizzes you can do both.

Includes 13 Quizzes and 1 Final test
Each quiz is ten questions and covers a single chapter. Every question is labeled with the Common Core Standard it assesses. Answer keys and student record sheets are also included.

These chapter quizzes over Pam Munoz Ryan’s remarkable Esperanza Rising go beyond recall and assess your student’s understanding of reading concepts you teach all year long. The quizzes are challenging, modeled around the common core and provide a bridge between novel study and standardized test preparation. Assess your student’s understanding of:
—figurative language
—character inferences
—author’s purpose
—point-of-view and perspective
—story structure
—supporting inferences with text evidence

Also Includes Teacher Resources
The questions resemble those found on standardized tests—they are difficult. To help with your planning you will find:
—a concise list of Common Core Standards covered by quizzes (4th, 5th and 6th grades).
—an outline of knowledge and skills assessed by quizzes (great for seeing how the quizzes link to your state/district standards and for planning mini-lessons).
—a reading guide that includes an overview of chapters and quizzes
