This resource was created to be used with the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell. The Reading Guide provides the students with a close read of the text with dependent questions that help target the Common core State Standards for Literature. This guide helps students with comprehension to help determine what the author is saying? The student reading guide is ready to duplicate for classroom use and teacher key for the test is included. Other resources are also available for “The Most Dangerous Game” on my site including a Multiple Choice test (three choices) and a Modified Multiple Choice Test (two choices), and a Writing Prompt for the students to add to the ending of the story or a Writing Prompt in the form of a newspaper article. Tests and all other reading activities have been aligned to Common Core State Standards.
