PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This thirty-four page resource for teaching Mark Twain's classic tale is a series of objective tests that cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests. In addition to their function as a method for checking story comprehension, these pages also work nicely as WHOLE-CLASS DISCUSSION GUIDES, SMALL-GROUP or INDEPENDENT READING GUIDES, HOMEWORK, or CONFERENCING TOOLS. They are also a valuable MANAGEMENT RESOURCE for a reading program that involves the use of multiple titles in one classroom.
This material DOES NOT REQUIRE STORY INTREPRETATION nor does it address ELEMENTS OF LITERATURE. Instead, it motivates students to practice thoughtful reading and build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
FULL ANSWER KEYS and two pages of rationale/teaching suggestions are included. Download the free preview pages for a closer look.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A teacher who is using the FREE INTERNET DOWNLOAD of this book has called to report a glitch in the electronic file. Beginning with chapter XVII (17) the THE ORIGINAL BOOK CHAPTERS AND THE ELECTRONIC CHAPTERS DO NOT MATCH. This file is available from many different sources, and they all seem to have passed along the same mix-up. However, with only one hard copy of the book, it is a simple matter to adjust the electronic files to match Mark Twain's original chapter configuration.

Thank you for this excellent resource! There are a few typos and a few questions which could "go either way" (with more than one answer), but that launches kids into more critical thinking and analysis....so it works. I appreciate the time and graphics, too!
On  October 15, 2012Margaret Whisnant answered:
Thanks for the feedback. I especially appreciate your letting me know about the mistakes. If you would please go to my Q&A to let me know where you found the typos, I will be happy to make the corrections so you can come back and get your corrected file.



UPDATE: This file has undergone another proofreading. Errors were found and corrected. The updated file has been posted. Thanks again, Skids1dog!

On  February 25, 2010,  Buyer said:
This is a very good resource, with just a couple of typos. The quiz labeled for chapter 31 is actually for chapter 30, and quiz labeled ch. 32 should be used with ch. 31 for the book I have. The last quiz is for chapters 32-35. The quiz for Chapter XXll--Chapter XXlll--Chapter XXIV, number 17 should read "this family", not "his family". Otherwise it's a pretty excellent resource for quizzes and tests. Thank you!
On  February 25, 2010Margaret Whisnant answered:
Thanks for pointing out the "this family" "his family" error. I have corrected this mistake and have posted the revision. You are so considerate to let me know about this problem!
As to the chapter discrepencies, I have included a statement about this problem in the product description. A customer reported this glitch to me earlier. It seems the internet postings of this title scrambled the chapter numbers. Different versions of the book itself also are not consistent in chapter numbering. It's something I can make my customers aware of, but there is nothing else I can do to remendy the situation. Sorry for the inconvenience.
