Note: This worksheet is created to help keep students on track of their reading while in the classroom with questions in chronological order. They are not higher level "why" questions, but questions that keep the reader engaged in the reading itself. Once the student has completed the worksheet, they are done reading the story and can now have in depth discussions on the story. I promise you your students will appreciate this worksheet.

This worksheet is designed with cost effective photocopying in mind. This is a one page worksheet.

As a public high school English teacher, the biggest challenge I have is getting students to read in class or at home. Put a book or short story in front of them, they'll look at it for a few seconds and start day dreaming...

Until I stumbled upon something magnificent. Teenagers like accomplishment. These worksheets ask questions while the reader reads. Every couple of sentences, there's another question in true or false, fill in the blank, define, multiple choice formats. As the student reads, boom, another question. They answer it and continue reading. Before you know it, they have finished reading the story and completed all questions for further lessons/discussions.

These worksheets are great for daily lessons, test/quiz grades, extra credit, homework, group work (in pairs of two), substitute teacher lessons, emergency lesson plans, great for ESOL or however you can imagine.
