Question description

Leaving home can be a difficult experience. This is a theme found within Jungle Book: Mowgli's Brothers

Which real-life experience best helps readers make a connection to this theme?



Read the excerpt from a student’s essay.

Chewing gum should be allowed at our school. Dentists agree that chewing sugarless gum prevents cavities. It has also been found that chewing a piece of gum improves students’ concentration and helps them score higher on tests. Selling gum in the school cafeteria will raise money for new P.E. equipment. I like watermelon flavored gum best!

Which is the best revision of the concluding sentence?



Read these lines from "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" by William Wordsworth.

I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o'er vales and hills, 
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host, of golden daffodils; 
Beside the lake, beneath the trees, 
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Which rhyme scheme is used in this stanza?



Read the excerpt from "Pirate Story" by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Three of us afloat in the meadow by the swing,
Three of us aboard in the basket on the lea.
Winds are in the air, they are blowing in the spring,
And waves are on the meadow like the waves there are at sea.

Adventure and imagination are exciting for children. This is a theme found in these lines.

How does repetition strengthen the theme of adventure and imagination?



Which best defines a topic and position in an argumentative essay about a field trip?



Read this passage from The Jungle Book.

There was a chorus of deep growls, and a young wolf in his fourth year flung back Shere Khan's question to Akela: "What have the Free People to do with a man's cub?"

Now the Law of the Jungle lays down that if there is any dispute as to the right of a cub to be accepted by the Pack, he must be spoken for by at least two members of the Pack who are not his father and mother.

"Who speaks for this cub?" said Akela. "Among the Free People, who speaks?" There was no answer, and Mother Wolf got ready for what she knew would be her last fight, if things came to fighting.

How does Akela follow the Law of the Jungle in this passage?



Read the excerpt from Jungle Book: Mowgli's Brothers.

The dawn was beginning to break when Mowgli went down the hillside alone to the crops to meet those mysterious things that are called men.

This detail best supports which theme?



Read the excerpt from Jungle Book: Mowgli's Brothers.

The fire was burning furiously at the end of the branch, and Mowgli struck right and left round the circle, and the wolves ran howling with the sparks burning their fur. At last there were only Akela, Bagheera, and perhaps ten wolves that had taken Mowgli's part. Then something began to hurt Mowgli inside him, as he had never been hurt in his life before, and he caught his breath and sobbed, and the tears ran down his face.

"What is it? What is it?" he said. "I do not wish to leave the jungle, and I do not know what this is. Am I dying, Bagheera?"

"No, Little Brother. Those are only tears such as men use," said Bagheera. "Now I know thou art a man, and a man's cub no longer. The jungle is shut indeed to thee henceforward. Let them fall, Mowgli; they are only tears." So Mowgli sat and cried as though his heart would break; and he had never cried in all his life before.

Which two themes are expressed in this excerpt?



Read this passage from The Jungle Book.

"It was well done," said Akela. "Men and their cubs are very wise. He may be a help in time."

"Truly, a help in time of need; for none can hope to lead the Pack forever," said Bagheera.

Akela said nothing. He was thinking of the time that comes to every leader of every pack when his strength goes from him and he gets feebler and feebler, till at last he is killed by the wolves and a new leader comes up—to be killed in his turn.

"Take him away," he said to Father Wolf, "and train him as befits one of the Free People."

And that is how Mowgli was entered into the Seeonee Wolf Pack for the price of a bull and on Baloo's good word.

How is Akela affected by the Law of the Pack?

So share freely your grin,

Which detail from "The Piñata" supports the theme that hard work yields rewards?



Read this excerpt from "The Piñata."

The paste cracked and flaked on my arms and hands from the heat of the garage. The old man pulled a small pocket knife from his back pocket. He cut open the jugs and taped the balloons to them to make a piñata form. He looked at me once more, and I knew what to do next. I returned to the bucket full of paste and handed him strip after sticky strip.

Why does the author include this imagery?



Read this excerpt from "The Piñata"

My mother sent me to his home every day in the summer to keep him company. "He has no one," she'd say, "since your nana passed."
He never said much to me. He only gave gruff instructions in broken English and a complaint here and there about how I didn't know Spanish. It was my second summer with him, and I could see why he was always alone.

Why is the narrator telling this tale?



Which detail from "The Piñatabest supports the theme that people express love in their own way?




Read this excerpt from "Just Another Sunday."

Jay and I were kicking a soccer ball. We had decided early in the summer to work on our skills. We were hoping to make the middle school team that fall. Jay and I had started playing soccer in first grade, and we practiced on Sunday afternoons.

This is the story's



Read this excerpt from "Just Another Sunday."

Why does the author most likely include this plot detail?

Jay flipped his hair so that it was out of his eyes. I could tell he was trying to act cool, but he must have been shaking on the inside.

"What do you know?" Pete said. "Mr. Soccer with his fancy jersey." My mom had just bought this new soccer jersey for me. At the start of the day, Jay had said how much he liked it, but now he was laughing right along with Pete. Then I watched as Jay walked over to the red car, kicking his feet out as he walked like Pete did, and tore off the antenna.

How does the narrator's role affect the characterization in this excerpt?




Read this excerpt from "Just Another Sunday."

"Where are we going?" I asked, not wanting to go, but not wanting to make Jay go alone with Pete either.


"You'll see."


I tried to catch Jay's eye, but he was looking straight ahead like he'd already forgotten I was there.

Why does the author include this plot detail?



Read this excerpt from "Just Another Sunday."

I was grounded from seeing Jay for a month. Sometimes I would see him in the hallway, and he'd give me a small, embarrassed smile. Every day I could see him changing: His hair was growing longer, and he’d ripped his jeans like Peter's.

Which statement best describes the pacing of this excerpt?



Read this excerpt from "The Prediction."

The numerous terrifying ways 
the many terrible things
