  1. Bellwork #16: MCT2 Practice Which of the following statements from The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer accurately portrays the resilient nature of Dave’s character? {2.d} [DOK 3] (Proficient) I am nine years old, and I’ve been living like this for years. Every day it’s the same thing. But that’s nothing new—I’ve learned to turn off the pain. The only pleasure in my life is when I sleep. That’s the only time I can escape my life. I love to dream.

  2. Bellwork #17: MCT2 Practice Read the following excerpt from The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer. Suddenly Mother reaches over and seizes my right ear. By accident, I flinch. With her free hand Mother punishes my movement with a solid slap to my face. Her hand becomes a blur, right up until the moment before it strikes my face. Based upon the above excerpt and the knowledge gained from reading A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer, what conclusion may the reader draw? {2.b} [DOK 3] (Proficient) Mother’s drinking has gotten out of control; therefore, she punishes him for “crimes “ he does not commit. Mother’s abuse has gotten more violent; consequently, her abuse is now concentrated on Dave’s face. Dave has learned to tighten his body in anticipation of Mother’s abuse; however, Mother catches him by surprise in this excerpt. Dave remains in constant fear because Father is now out of the picture.

Suddenly she became regal. The act was on. ‘That? Oh, the phone? No problem. I have…I mean, we have to get going anyway.” Based upon the context in the excerpt, which choice will the reader infer as the meaning of regal? {1.d} [DOK 2] (Proficient) Insane Proper Cautious Angry

The closer The Mother came, the more her red face, filled with hatred, came into focus. Now read the following sentence. Using your understanding of prefixes and the word transformed, what is the meaning of translation? {1.a} [DOK 2] (Proficient) Misinformation Warning Change Insight In this book, the translation of David’s hope to reality is made possible through the hard work of social workers such as Ms. Gold.
