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

by Rockin Resources
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 comprehension assessment to go along with it. It is a great cold read to either teach text evidence (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.
