A Taste of Blackberries by Doris Buchanan Smith
A Taste of Blackberries Chapter-by-Chapter Objective Tests Teaching Guide
This 20-page resource for teaching Doris Buchanan Smith's story of friendship and loss is a series of objective tests (multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, matching style) that cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test.
The questions are written to draw attention to plot sequence, cause and effect, character traits and motivation, story clues, and implied meaning. Awareness of the facts is the targeted goal. Students will need to read the material carefully and thoroughly in order to score well on these quizzes.
These tests DO NOT require story interpretation nor do they address elements of literature. Instead, they build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
A Taste of Blackberries Objective Tests can be put to use (in lieu of or in addition to their function as comprehension checks) as whole class discussion guides, small-group reading guides, homework study guides, and conferencing tools. They are also reliable indicators of student progress for independent reading assignments.
Teachers may choose to use these pages as review resources to prepare students for more complicated quizzes.
Full answer keys are included.
