Students will read the first chapter of W.E.B. DuBois' novel "The Quest for the Silver Fleece." The two main characters, Bles and Zora meet and discuss their lives as young African Americans growing up in the South during Reconstruction.
The chapter is followed by four multiple choice questions and six open-ended questions. In addition to the answers to the multiple choice questions, the answer key also has explanations and possible responses to every open-ended question.
The questions that follow the story test a variety of reading comprehension and literary analysis skills. Students who regularly complete these reading comprehension tasks will be well prepared for any reading comprehension test, including common core, ACT and SAT.
