FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Duke Ellington Biography, Assessment, Vocabulary, and Vocabulary Quiz”

by Mrs. O. 
3rd - 5th Grade

Free!!! The vocabulary handouts were formulated from the beautifully written book Duke Ellington by Andrea Davis Pinkney. I then downloaded a biography off of PBS kids and created a 2 page test to go along with it. It is a great cold read to either teach highlighting skills or practice for standardized tests. There are 20 questions total (12 multiple choice, a timeline, and 2 open-ended questions. Several questions are related to sequence. Others are genre, vocabulary, inference, etc. Another idea would be reading the biography from the website and answering the questions.

Thank you for visiting Mrs. O's Rockin Resources! Pam Olivieri
