Product Description

This editable 14-question guided reading worksheet promotes active reading strategies, facilitating general reading comprehension and higher-order analysis of a classic Grimms' fairy tale titled "The Twelve Dancing Princesses." A copy of the short story is included since it is in the public domain. By completing this activity, students will demonstrate general plot recall and active engagement with the text via making annotations. Though labeled a guided reading handout, it may also serve as an assessment tool that holds students accountable for assigned independent or group reading. All questions are Common Core aligned to the reading literature, language, and writing standards at the ninth and tenth grade levels.

The resource is delivered in Word Document and PDF formats. Access to a Google Document version is also included. Make a copy to edit as desired. An answer key is provided. Additionally, a copy of the text is included since it is in the public domain. This resource is available in a discounted bundle.

Questions pertain to the following:

  • Demonstrating grasp of general plot
  • Analyzing craft (students will determine how the author's choice of words affects the reader).
  • Applying knowledge of literary devices (students will identify textual examples of foreshadowing, metaphor, and dramatic irony).
  • Analyzing character actions to draw reasoned inferences about character interests and motivations

This resource aligns well to Academic Literacy Project teaching principles. These worksheets serve well 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.
