This two-for-one pack is for the short story The Pedestrian by Ray Bradbury and essay Dial versus Digital by Isaac Asimov. This purchase contains a complete guided reading worksheet for each story. Two stories for the price of one, Great value!

This pack is designed with cost effective photocopying in mind. Each worksheet is 1 page. You can copy both worksheets to make a combined front/back copy using only 1 sheet of paper. No staples. Or you can make a class set of both lessons to a front/back copy and have students write their answers on their own sheet of paper.
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 magnificant. 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.
