The attached Word document includes 4 short answer questions. These questions require both critical and creative thinking. They also require students to exercise their inferencing abilities and make both personal and social/current connections.
Questions 1 and 2 have 2 parts to them (2 questions each), while questions 3 and 4 are 1 questions each.
Some questions could be used for a short or long essay answer and/or as a "ticket in" / "ticket out" comprehension activity.
Some questions could also be extended into greater activities / assignments. For example, question 4 could turn into a drama presentation or media literacy assignment.
Since it is in Word Doc format, you can easily edit any aspect of this product should you wish to (e.g. removing / adding more questions, changing the margin size, changing the font size). It can also be modified to suit the various needs (e.g. IEP modifications, accommodations, etc.) of your students.
