Based on the 5th grade Reading Street text, here is an assessment for the realistic fiction story, Sweet Music in Harlem, from Unit 6: The Unexpected.
If you use Reading Street in the classroom and do not like using the wordy, complicated Reading Street Assessment, use this much FRIENDLIER ADAPTATION instead!
Created based on 5th grade ELA CCSS.
The assessment includes the VOCABULARY from the story, as well as COMPREHENSION, AUTHOR'S PURPOSE, GENRE, SEQUENCING, and more to show understanding of the story but created in a way to allow your students more SUCCESS.
Could also be used as TEST PREP for the official Reading Street assessment.
