There is no designated pre- or post-assessment for Historical Fiction; however, we encourage you to use one of the options below to gather information about your students during this unit:
- Option 1: Create your own pre- and/or post-assessment addressing one or more of the types of questions previously used during the fall and winter Silent Reading Assessments. Base these questions off of a short text, picture book or an excerpt from your read-aloud. As a reminder, the questions from the fall/winter assessments will be similar to the ones that will be asked on Spring Silent Reading Assessment to be conducted the week of May 30-June 2, 2017.
- Option 2: You may also decide to create an informal stop-and-jot assessment as described in the unit using a read-aloud and questions such as “Why did the author include this setting/quote/description/etc.?” See pages 138-139 in the unit for details on creating this stop-and-jot assessment.
