2 S HORT A NSWER Q UESTIONS (C ONSTRUCTED R ESPONSE ) Example Questions: 1. What is this selection mostly about? 2. What is the speaker of this poem trying to convey about music? Summarize the speaker’s opinion of music and give examples from the poem to support the opinion. As you can see, you’ll have to think carefully about the selection before answering. These types of questions don’t simply ask you to recall details. It requires a response that demonstrated you have really thought about the question. SEE EXAMPLE ANSWERS 1 & 2 (PAGE 158) 626

3 SCORING RUBRIC FOR SHORT ANSWER QUESTIONS: 2 points : The response provides a complete and correct answer. 1 point : The response is partially correct. It show limited understanding or contains errors. 0 points : The response is incorrect, irrelevant, too brief to evaluate, or blank.

4 T ECHNIQUES TO USE WHEN ANSWERING SA QUESTIONS : PAGES Understand the question. 2. Use keywords from the question in your response. 3. Use specific details from the selection. 4. Write your answer in complete sentences. 5. Stick to the topic.

5 G UIDED P RACTICE : SKILL BUILDER ( PAGES ) We will read “Wheels to Dance” & “I Saw in Louisiana a Live-Oak Growing” together. We will answer SA questions 1-4 as a group.

6 Q UESTION 1: PAGE 162 Give one example of figurative language used in the passage. For example, mention words that compare dancing to something totally different. What characteristics are suggested by the comparison? One example of figurative language used in the passage is a simile. The passage states, “dancing is like being free-like a dolphin in the water.” Dancing is being compared to a dolphin, which has the ability to move around freely in the water.

7 Q UESTION 1: S CORE D ESCRIPTIONS 2 points : The response gives one example of figurative language and explains it. 1 point : The response is partially correct. It includes an example of figurative language but includes either no explanation or an irrelevant/illogical explanation. 0 points : The response is incorrect, irrelevant, too brief to evaluate, or blank.

8 Q UESTION 2: PAGE 162 How does it help Jenny’s concentration to face a dance partner and imitate each other’s movements? Use information from the passage to support your explanation. Facing a dance partner and imitating each other’s movements are helpful to Jenny because they help her learn to think ahead and to make predictions. For example, when she leads and the partner imitates her, she has to think ahead to what she will do next. When she follows, she has to guess or predict what her partner will do next in order to keep up.

9 Q UESTION 2: S CORE D ESCRIPTIONS 2 points: The response explains how the exercise helps Jenny’s concentration and includes at least one detail from the passage to support the explanation. 1 point : The response is partially correct. It identifies how the exercise helps Jenny’s concentration, but it does not provide a supporting detail/example. 0 points : The response is incorrect, irrelevant, too brief to evaluate, or blank.

10 Q UESTION 3: PAGE 163 Based on the poem, what is one way that the speaker thinks he is like a tree. Explain your answer using information from the poem. The speaker thinks he and the tree are both rough but strong and full of life. In line 4, the speaker says, “its look, rude, unbending lusty, made me think of myself.

12 Q UESTION 4: PAGE 164 Based on the poem, what is one way that the speaker thinks he is not like the live-oak tree. Explain your answer using information from the poem. The speaker thinks he is not like the tree when it comes to friends. The tree is happy alone, but the speaker is not. In the last 2 lines, the speaker states, “Uttering joyous leaves all its life without a friend a lover near, I know very well I could not.” He means that the tree thrives even though it’s alone, but the speaker would rather have friends to keep him company.

13 Q UESTION 4: S CORING D ESCRIPTIONS 2 points : The response identifies and explains one way the speaker thinks he is not like the tree. 1 point : The response is partially correct.

14 THE EXTENDED RESPONSE QUESTION SEE PAGES (Sample Essay Question information) We will read “Who’s the King” and “Hatred” together. We will then analyze the sample essay on page 168. The extended response question is worth a total of 4 points. (See example score description for the sample essay on page 169.)

15 G UIDED P RACTICE : EXTENDED RESPONSE We will read “The Fight” & “Computers Do Not Benefit Young People” on pages We will then answer the extended response question together. Think about how computers are portrayed in “The Fight” and “Computers…People.” Write an essay of at least words describing how computers are portrayed as both helpful and harmful. Use examples from the two selections to support your ideas.

16 G UIDED P RACTICE : E XTENDED R ESPONSE S AMPLE E SSAY 4 PTS. In “The Fight,” computers are portrayed as helpful. When Jamila could not afford to purchase a gift for the senior citizens at the nursing home, she decided to create story booklets for each person. The passage states that Nurse Quentin allowed her to use the nursing home’s paper and printer. Jamila typed the stories they had told previously then printed and stapled them together as a “keepsake.” However, in “Computers…People,” computers are portrayed as harmful. The passage states, “Teenagers who spend hours in front of a computer monitor sacrifice other skills that are learned in the early years of life.” Some of those skills mentioned in the letter are imagination and social skills. Additionally, teenagers are exposed to inappropriate material that they may be too young to handle or other forms of offensive material.
