TWO VERSIONS – Print and Go for in-person classrooms, and DIGITAL REMOTE RESOURCE READY Fillable PDF for Distance Learning and Online classrooms! This assessment covers chapters 1 through 10 of the novel, it and includes 30 STAAR-style questions and 10 vocabulary matching questions to gauge understanding and mastery. Aligned to the “Study Guide to Accompany Linda Sue Park’s A Long Walk to Water” this is a must have for those scholars who have been studying the novel. THIS ASSESSMENT REPLACES ASSESSMENTS 1 AND 2. Not everyone wants to do multiple assessments during a novel study, so this provides an option for a midpoint check for understanding.
Simply print out the four-page assessment, either single-sided or double sided, and use in your classroom after completing chapter 10. If your classes are using the “Study Guide to Accompany Linda Sue Park’s A Long Walk to Water”, also offered by ELA in Middle School, then your scholars have already discussed aspects of each question. If you are giving the assessment online, simply upload the Digital FORM version to your classroom platform and share it with your student-scholars!
