SAT Style Reading Passage–Around the World in 80 Days

Around the World in 80 Days is one of my favorite stories and I find it is a good bridging work for students who struggle with “old fashioned” writing styles. If you plan to use this novel as reading practice, ensure that you get the complete version rather than an abridged one which will simply the language and defeat the ostensible purpose of reading the story.

The passage is the first chapter of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days and includes a vocabulary list with definitions, 12 practice questions and an answer key. Use the link below to be taken directly to the materials. This passage is free, and you don’t need to be a teacher to use the website, but you will need to make an account to download free materials.
