Recently, our school had a visit from the author of "The Red Scarf Girl", Ji Li Jiang. To prepare my middle school students for the visit, I took an excerpt from her book. The excerpt was from "The Propaganda Wall" and created ten questions based on the passage. I used the NYS ELA assessment questions as a template for the structure of the handout. There are 5 multiple choice questions and 5 short response questions. The piece includes an art work interpretation as well. The book is based from the 1960's during China's cultural revolution.
