My first few years of teaching I was always on the search for rigorous quizzes that test my students’ close reading skills. However, I could never find any. Therefore, I started creating my own.
For this unit, I have 4 quizzes. Below you will find all of the following:
· A reading schedule that I give my students. It tells them what chapters they are supposed to read each week.
· A quiz for each week of reading.
· Answer keys for all the quizzes.
All quizzes are in the same format. They have 10 short answer questions (these can be answered in a few words) and 10 multiple choice questions. 2 of the multiple choice questions are vocabulary in context questions.
These quizzes were specifically made so students could not simply read a summary and pass.
