Item description

Go beyond reading comprehension with this set of analysis questions for Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Covering a chapter seven journal entry dated July 2, this resource supports the development of high school close reading skills and facilitates preparation for standardized testing scenarios. An answer key is included. Materials are delivered in Word Document and PDF formats. By completing this exercise, students will:

  • Identify what the text states explicitly and implicitly
  • Analyze how complex characters develop and interact
  • Make logical inferences about Miranda’s mindset in the context of the language she uses to communicate ideas
  • Apply knowledge of literary devices including allusion and situational irony
  • Infer the reason(s) for Miranda’s frequent dreams of Becky
  • Determine the function of the diary entry
  • Support claims with relevant textual evidence and reasoning
  • Write ideas with clarity and precision

This resource may serve as the basis for small-group discussions in which students decode language and pose/respond to questions relating to plot, broad topics, and character development. Using this resource for structured guidance, students will improve their ability to present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly and convincingly.
