This is an assessment to go with the Common Core Standard 2.RL.1 answering those important reading questions Who? What? Where? When? Why? and How? The assessment is included in my Smart board 5 day lesson pack Called Common Core Detective Work, however if you are in need of just an assessment for that standard this is the download for you. 2nd grade readability level and really addresses all the questions, stems and prompts of the standard. Multiple choice, short answer and even has a drawing component. Cold reads (never before seen passages) on the 2nd grade level to address the standard.
