This assessment is meant to be taken after reading various Tall Tales like Mike Fink, Pecos Bill, John Henry, Davy Crockett, etc. Students will demonstrate understanding of the genre and elements required to qualify a story as a tall tale.
This assessment is a mix of written response and multiple choice questions. I've found that my students' written responses take a long time to grade, and wanted an option that would be shorter for me. Also, I wanted them to have experience answering questions similar to their Unit Assessments and standardized tests (with multiple choice, and 'choose 'two' questions). I also hope this will help struggling writers show their comprehension abilities.
The answer key is also attached.
Goes great with ReadyGEN, but would work well with any Tall Tale Unit.
