Product Description
This file includes a comprehension writing quiz, multiple choice section, and writing activity for the nonfiction piece "Steelworker" by Trudy Pax Farr. (The excerpt was included in a series by Studs Terkel).

The story is about a woman who works at a factory as a burner, and her reflections as a female worker. Included:

* A reading quiz. The quiz has 5 short answer questions focusing on comprehension. Answer key included.
* A multiple choice quiz. These questions are comprehension based. Answer key included.
* Writing prompt. This writing activity asks students to write using descriptive techniques. "The Steelworker" is full of imagery and figurative language. A prewriting sheet helps them brainstorm for their writing prompt. An answer key is not included for this portion.

(Note: I have taught this piece numerous times, and that is why two quizzes are included in this packet. Use whichever you feel will work best for your class, or use one as an after-reading quiz and the other in a larger test).
