This passage (and the Burnbridge Breakouts series) has been written with reluctant readers in mind. One question meets the student where they are (RI.5.3), five are at the target grade level (RI.8.1, RI.8.2, RI.8.3, RI.8.5 and RI.8.6), and three are “reach” questions (RI.9.1, RI.9.3 and RI.9.4). Each question has the standard and relevant rationale listed in the answer key. The critical thinking questions target RI.8.8 and RI.8.9.
