Reading Comprehension - The Jungle Book (Penguin Readers)

(0)
***answer key included A reading comprehension for the Penguin Readers book The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. Books from Penguin Readers are adapted for English learners (ESL or EFL) and categorized by levels (from 1 to 6). For more information, go to www.penguinreaders.com The Penguin Readers' version of The Jungle Book is a level 2 (Elementary) book. I used the activity sheets available on the Penguin Readers' teacher website, adapted it and made it into a user-friendly test. You just need to print, photocopy and bring to class. These tests are not available to students on the Penguin Readers' website. You need to have a teacher account to access these worksheets. My test includes room for students to write their answers, the identification of the chapters when it applies, and is on 50 points, and therefore easy for teachers to assess their students' understanding. Even though, it is adapted and not authentic English material, I swear by Penguin Readers for all my classes because for most ESL or EFL students, it is the only way they can read classics of the English Literature. I find it important for students to learn not only the English language but the English culture. And let's face it, literature is a big part of any culture.

to be used as part of an independent reading project. Students must read at a certain frequency and for a certain amount of minutes; however the students choose their own reading material. an evaluation grid is included. The number of days has a greater worth because the objective is to create a reading routine. *** I created the program and documents to promote reading English material to ESL students. The project had amazing results with more than 75% of my eighth graders reading more than 6 books during the whole school year!!! *** By allowing them to select their own reading material, they can choose better adapted reading material, both in language and topic.
