These review questions cover Chapters 16-24 of Book II.
QR codes give students the ability to check their own work. This can dramatically shorten the time needed for the activity by allowing students to work at their own pace and check answers as they go, or keep it a full length lesson (more than an hour) and have student discuss answers before allowing them to reveal the answer. This can be done as an individual or class activity.
Why do this exercise?
These questions can serve as a starting point for discussion. Ask students why each question is important to understanding the story.
Some questions have answers straight from the book, while others require students to use inferences, prior knowledge, or research. Ask students to back up their inferences with facts from the novel.
I included some questions because I discovered I had made some assumptions that students would realize certain information, for example, the nationality of the different characters. I was surprised by how many of my students could not figure this out. It is evidence of basic understanding of the characters, and it should help you assess their comprehension.
How should you do it?
You may wish to edit the instructions to the students as to when and how to check their answers. A good idea might be to have a class discussion about the answers before revealing the answer in the code.
This can take a long time or be a quick review depending on whether you wish to discuss the answers and have students check their answers as they go.
You may post the slides on a private webpage or Edmodo for students to do the review outside class. Providing the answers is also convenient for absent students and reduces/eliminates the need for extra time before taking a test upon return.
QR codes can be read on computer screens, so you don’t have to print the slides!
If student movement is an issue, students can view the slides through the computer or on the overhead with each student getting a turn at scanning the qr code for the class.
