Thank you for putting together the chapter quiz part of your packet. It's nice not to have to re-create the wheel. Good, solid questions. It's just slightly unclear how to use the reading quiz format. Thank you.

Excellent product! Well worth the money, since I used so much of it. I love the 5 question quiz format. It was very helpful in checking who actually did the reading. I, too, wish that this was in a format that can be edited. I was unable to get the pdftoword cite to work. Thanks for putting this great product together though.

On  January 8, 2013CORI BRAVO (TpT Seller) said:
This is a great unit. It has tons of questions as well as blank answer documents and the keys for quizzes. The only thing that would make it better is if it were not a PDF file, but in one that could be edited. I teach resource level English, and some of the questions are too difficult for my students. There are also over 300 study guide questions. It would be nice to be able to edit the documents to suit your specific needs.
On  January 8, 2013parrott answered:
Cori, thank you for your kind comments. I'm delighted you found the unit helpful with your kids. When I first started posting items on TpT, some individuals had trouble with Word documents; therefore, I started using PDF files that everyone can download. If you want to convert the file to Word, here is a free resource that will do it for you: http://www.pdftoword.com/

If you have trouble with it, feel free to contact me, and I'll make sure you receive a good Word file. Again, thanks for purchasing and for leaving such a nice review. Edie

Item is well worth the money. There are tons of study,short answer, and essay questions to support the novel. I think the seller presents a good deal of variety--explanations are thorough--very good quality. The packet will definitely help moniter comprehension as you read the novel, provide writing opportunities to help students make connections well beyond the novel--very impressed at first glance.

Thanks!

Kris, since it's a PDF file that everyone should be able to open, I'm not sure what the problem could be. Please email me, and I'll try to help:

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  April 27, 2011,  Michael M. asked:
I was looking for a multiple choice test. This served as a good basis, but required quite a bit of work to adapt. I was surprised at the number of errors. For example, Zalman instead of Zaman. Kyber Pass instead of Khyber Pass. Also, there are question errors. For example, Q48 of Short Answer asks what Amir does for an entire year. I believe it should ask what Sohrab does for an entire year since the answer is "stay silent."

I am so sorry! I am usually much more careful and have someone else check my work before I post it. Thank you for letting me know. I'll make the corrections tonight and post the revision tomorrow.
