Over 40 pages of Reading Comprehension Texts, Multiple-Choice Questions, Writing Prompts, Lesson Deliver Noes, and Student Writing Exemplars.
I use this package with my Grade 10-12 English students (and select few English 9 classes). I select one text each week for 10 weeks. Students have 45 minutes to read, answer a handful of multiple-choice questions, and one paragraph written-response question. Not only do students' reading comprehension scores improve over the course of the 10 weeks, but they are so much better prepared for the final examination. Since they have had much practice with the format of exam, their anxiety of the test is also dramatically reduced.
The texts herein are comprised of 5 poems, 2 short stories, 2 persuasive essays, and 1 narrative essay.
Also included is a student exemplar of a written response, (exemplifying clear expectations for student writing), along with lesson notes, and a handout for constructing an example paragraph response.
Some of the ten texts are available on the Internet (e.g., Rudyard Kipling's "If—"), however the multiple-choice and written-response questions are unique.
I have also found that students also come to like the regularity of these reading comprehension quizzes; each week, they know what is coming and track their improvements over the term. I am sure you will find these texts as useful in your classes as I find them in mine.
