Product Description
Common Core, Smarter Balanced
This is a great selection to use in conjunction with Lorraine Hansberry's play "A Raisin In The Sun," and it is Common Core aligned and written as a Smarter-Balanced type of assessment.

This 4-page selection from "To Be Young, Gifted, and Black" can be used as a cold read, a homework assignment, or a pre- or post-reading-the-play assignment to get your students thinking about Hansberry's ideas.

The reading assessment is a 3-page set of questions that can be used as a quiz, homework, or in-class assignment. There are 10 multiple-choice questions and 8 short-answer questions. The questions range from in-text to beyond-text questions.

There is also a 3-page answer key that includes possible answers for the short-answer section.

All of the documents come in Word and in PDF, making for 20 total pages.

I have also used this assignment when I needed a substitute. It will work great to keep students on track if you need an emergency lesson quickly.
