Looking for a way to challenge your students beyond just simple comprehension questions? This product includes 74 multiple choice questions for Lois Lowry's Number the Stars. The questions divide the novel into 4 sections (ch. 1-4, 5-8, 9-12 and 13-17). Each section has between 18-20 questions based on those chapters. In addition to the multiple choice questions, each sheet includes a routine writing extension, which asks students to use textual evidence and to connect with the text on a personal level.
The questions provided extend beyond plot and are focused on connotative diction, vocabulary, inference, characterization, and other higher order thinking skills. In addition to requiring students to think critically about Lowry's text, the multiple choice questions will expose students to standardized assessment format. Each of the questions is mirrored after the style and rigor of state standardized tests. This product offers text-dependent and Common Core aligned assessment for your students.
Included in this product are the 74 multiple choice questions, 4 writing extensions, highlighted answer keys, and question by question alignment to the ELA Common Core State Standards.
