This says it’s for non-fiction texts, yet most of the questions are better suited to fiction texts.

Sorry, I should have said ‘some’ of the questions, not ‘most’.

Erin Cheung · Apr 26th, 2018


Thanks for this observation Erin. We also have a Fiction version of this here:
In this case, we feel the questions are suitable for a non-fiction text and cover the outcomes for years 1, 2 and 3 in the Responding to Literature curriculum outcomes.
