I want to test my students on clarifying strategies. Does anyone have a test made up? With a sentence or paragraphs....clarify this word. How about read this passage, and what is the main idea? Topic? Purpose?

I want this to be my exam for 6th-8th grade.

Can we do attachments on this blog? I would love to share things....

but i'm not sure what you're looking for---what is "clarifying strategies"?

are you looking for something like this:
an article or story that the students read and then you give them a list of questions....
*give a cause/effect relationship in story
*name one fact; name one opinion
*what is the author's purpose for writing this piece?
*what genre is the text?
*using context clues, what does "sakdjasldj" mean?
*what synonym for "asdlkfj" is used in the article?


i have a bunch of workbooks, and when i need something like that, i pull one out and find a passage for which i can make several questions like the above.


you cannot post attachments until you are a junior member, at 25 posts.
