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 second chapter of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Featuring 8 multiple choice questions, this resource includes an answer key and covers the following:
♦ Drawing logical inferences (supporting the notion that Miss Caroline is out of touch with the lives of her students)
♦ The significance of Miss Caroline's being from Winston County, Alabama
♦ What motivates Miss Caroline to insist that Atticus not teach Scout how to read
♦ Drawing logical inferences (supporting the notion that Walter Cunningham is embarrassed to be the center of attention)
♦ Defining vocabulary in context (dreary)
♦ Interpreting idiomatic expression (tail in a crack)
♦ Character's intent (Atticus's sincere belief that the Cunningham family will eventually repay him for his services)
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.
