This activity forces students to find support for statements that are given. The support must come from the short story "Harrison Bergeron."
I was finding that my students would make claims, but had a difficult time substantiating those claims with evidence from the text. This activity helped quite a bit, and I was able to use this as a great formative assessment while walking around the room as my students worked.
The preview shows the first two statements that are given. Students must go back through the short story in order to find lines to support the statement given.
The textbook I have has a copy of Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron" included, and there are line numbers present. Line numbers are a plus, but are not necessary for students to use this practice.
On the back side of this worksheet, students are given messages from the short story, and they have to find lines to support the given message.
