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 promotes active reading of two passages from chapters 23 & 26 of To Kill a Mockingbird, helping students derive deeper meaning of the material. Featuring 7 multiple choice questions, this editable resource includes an answer key and covers the following:

♦ Vocabulary in context

♦ Analysis of Jem's dynamic character

♦ Drawing inferences about Boo's motivations

♦ Determining internal conflict

♦ The author's intended message in a passage

♦ The motif of hypocrisy

♦ The author's use of language to establish character

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.

This resource was designed to promote deeper understanding of the novel and prepare students for ACT-style questioning. An answer key is included.

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.
