Students will read the first chapter of William Dean Howells' rags to riches story
“The Rise of Silas Lapham.”
The chapter is followed by five multiple choice questions and eleven 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.
