It can be edited to fit your class needs and learning styles. I revised and created these questions to fall in-line with the type of questions my students are expected to answer on the FSA (Florida Standards Assessment) in the Spring of 2015. It was used and prepared to cater to the needs of my 3rd class in an effort to familiarized my students with common-core style questions using authentic literature.
My students read this novel (a minimum of 15 mins) silently everyday in class. They used the practice questions to justify what they read. We reviewed 1 or 2 questions in class & I typically checked their work while they were at lunch (much of the questions were wrong in class). They would be assigned to re-read the chapters at home and given back their worksheets to correct any incorrect answers.
I used a YouTube readAlong in class for my struggling and (some) average readers to facilitate reading comprehension. I also readAloud to my students to facilitate with the listening portion of their future FSA assessment. Furthermore, students were provided the YouTube reading links through our class website.
