Summer Reading Challenge - Library - Reading for Pleasure KS3 and KS4

Summer Reading Challenge - Library - Reading for Pleasure KS3 and KS4

This is a clearly presented, generic reading challenge to ensure your students keep on reading! Sometimes it is easier to make it a fun challenge, especially by something like finding a book to read where the main character is not human. It is one thing to tell children what to read, and this should be avoided, as ownership is key. But it is entirely acceptable to give choices and let children self-select with some guidelines. There are many reading challenges available online, but I wanted to create one which was just clear, and uncluttered, with enough choice to appeal, hopefully, to everyone.

PARCC Aligned Practice Testing (7th Grade) w/ Prove It 2.0 Skills (Full Keys Included!!)

Included is a PARCC -Aligned practice test including a fictional passage and constructed response writing activity involving a journal entry. The questions involve the following areas: vocabulary theme theme development context clues Two Part questions (Parts A and B) citing textual evidence characterization narrative text writing-journal entry What makes this activity so much more valuable is that is includes the Whole Brain strategy of Prove It 2.0 strategies. This technique encourages the students to indicate whether EACH ANSWER CHOICE is correct or incorrect based on the text. The students must write a response in their own words for all answer choices. This strategy allows the students to think about their way of thinking through verifying or justifying their answer choices with textual evidence. This technique has worked beautifully for my students and has been proven to improve standardized test scores. Educator TIP: It is even more beneficial for the students to talk about their answer choices with higher order thinking discussion stems: " I think that answer choice A is incorrect because, according to the text, ________________________________. " In essence, seeing, thinking, and speaking helps to bring about a critical thinking experience, that eventually, with practice, become an effective tool in comprehending complex text.
