Product Description

This editable 7-question close reading assessment promotes active reading strategies, facilitates high-order analysis, and prepares students for ACT reading test question types (vocabulary-in-context questions, author's voice and method questions, main idea questions, and detail questions). Questions pertain to a select passage from chapter 18 of The Hobbit. A detailed answer key is included. All materials are included as a Word Document, Google Document, and PDF.

By engaging in this exercise, students will...

  • Analyze the effect of the author's language upon the reader
  • Determine tone in context
  • Draw reasoned inferences about characterization
  • Apply knowledge of literary devices to the novel
  • Read closely to determine logical inferences
  • Write about literature such that the reader will follow the student's reasoning
  • Support claims with relevant textual evidence and/or reasoned thinking

This resource aligns well to Academic Literacy Project teaching principles and may serve as the basis for small-group discussions. Through these discussions, students decode language and pose/respond to questions relating to plot, broad topics, and character development, demonstrating an ability to analyze how complex characters transform and advance the plot and themes by applying logic and citing compelling, meaningful textual evidence. They will also evaluate their peers' reasoning and use of rhetoric to advance claims, clarifying or challenging unclear ideas. Using this resource for structured guidance, students, ultimately, will present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly, concisely, and appropriately, thereby helping their peers -- and teacher -- comprehend their thinking.

In addition to helping students gain deeper understanding of the material and greater confidence in their ability to read and comprehend complex texts, this resource helps prepare students for ACT reading question types.
