Overview: This resource includes a NYT article written in student-friendly language, multiple choice questions and and answer key. The article comes from the NYT Learning Network, which also provides open-ended questions related to the article.
How I used it: I created these 5 multiple-choice questions to reinforce the skills of identifying supporting details, drawing conclusions and vocabulary in context. I used the NYT Learning Network's provided open-ended questions with my honors students prior to giving them these multiple-choice questions. I used only these multiple-choice questions in my general and SPED co-taught classes.
