Originally designed for an AP English language class, they may be used as they are or in conjunction with my detailed study guides for the same novel. These quizzes are written with great care to be both easy to correct and challenging. Too many teachers make quizzes and study guides that are laborious to correct. Mine are built to efficiently assess students' understanding with a minimum amount of time needed to correct. I believe in saving time to spend on student writing.

I began teaching in 1975 and retired in 2007. Early in that 32 years, I tried using all sorts of educational materials created by other experts. I did not consider myself an educational "expert" of any kind at that time, but I definitely had a pretty clear notion of what materials I actually needed to make my style of teaching successful. Six or seven years into the profession, still unable to find anything that really fit, I finally started cutting my own path and producing my own materials. That adventure led me to success. Please download my (somewhat autobiographical) products to get an idea where my search for educational methods has led. Maybe they will help you in your own:

Thanks very much! Really was a big help!
On  February 1, 2012Wohlsi's TPT Store answered:
And thank you as well. Please have a look at my new materials. I'm especially interested in knowing how people feel about the close reading study guides and my free product in connection with them. It explains how and why I've developed them and how I've used them. I also have prepared a free product that explains my methods of teaching writing. I try to keep the work load manageable, but English/Language Arts always runs into paperwork. Any comments you have will be greatly appreciated.

Very creative approach in the excellent study guide and these questions--encouraging students to pose their own questions for much of the work. Excellent idea. Thank you.
On  February 1, 2012Wohlsi's TPT Store answered:
I can't tell you how grateful I am that you perceive creativity in my work. Some think my methods are rather blunt and uninspired. I assure you, I have refined my approach to creating these quizzes and study guides for many years. Thank you for taking note.
