For Tuesday's EQAO Practice Page, the boys and girls will read a story I wrote called, "Penny's Problem". The focus of this task will be on how to respond to three types of questions or prompts:
- identify how a character's mood or attitude changes throughout the story
- discuss an alternative title to the story and explain whether or not it is a suitable choice
- identify how one character supports another
There are three story-related questions for students to answer. Two of them may result in similar responses and that could be confusing for students, so I've attached a little note to the bottom of the page to explain my rationale for this.
While it's extremely unlikely the EQAO booklets would ever present a situation such as this, this particular story provides a good opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with these two particular prompts.
