Item description

Help middle and high school students go beyond basic plot recall and develop close reading analysis skills with this set of high-order questions covering chapters 1 and 2 of Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. This worksheet is delivered in Word Document and PDF formats, and it eliminates the need for take-home assessment planning while upholding the need for rigor in the classroom. An answer key is provided. 

More specifically, students will do the following:

  • Identify what the text states explicitly and implicitly
  • Discern the greater significance of a given detail
  • Explore how complex characters think, behave, interact, and develop
  • Compare and contrast characters (Ender and Peter)

Using this resource for structured guidance, students will improve their ability to present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly and convincingly.

Materials are available for teaching a variety of texts such as:
