Product Description
Helping students comprehend what they read is an essential skill that promotes success in terms of academics and career readiness. This close reading exercise helps students derive deeper meaning from the tenth chapter of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Featuring 8 multiple choice questions, this resource includes an answer key and covers the following:

♦ Analyzing character: Assessing Scout's feelings toward her father.
♦ Understanding vocabulary in context: Rudiments.
♦ Paraphrasing Maudie's explanation why "it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
♦ Deriving meaning: What Scout means when she refers to a "generous target."
♦ Understanding character motivation: Why Scout wished her "father was a devil from hell."
♦ Understanding vocabulary in context: Erratically.
♦ Making logical inferences.
♦ Paraphrasing Maudie's explanation for why Atticus does not like guns.

This resource aligns well to Adolescent Literacy Project teaching principles. I recommend using these worksheets as the basis for small-group discussions, letting students discuss, debate, and support their reasoning for answer choices. In the role of facilitator, I observe my students becoming more consistently engaged with the novel and taking greater ownership of their learning.

In addition to helping students gain deeper understanding of the material and greater confidence in their ability to read harder texts, this resource was designed to prepare students for ACT-style questioning.

If you prefer a comprehensive resource to make teaching the novel more convenient, consider this mega bundle, which includes a set of 13 comprehension quizzes, a set of 15 close reading worksheets, a 29-page reading guide, and a unit test.
