Another paired text set, the English teacher's dream!
STAAR- aligned questions over "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" by Rudyard Kipling and "The Dinner Party" by Mona Gardner. Both of these texts are available online in pdf form.
I have included a student sample that you may use as a "key." I require all of my students to write in complete sentences and cite the text. When working with middle school students, this simple task improves their ability to perform successfully on the English I & II EOC tests.
