This quick reading quiz assesses students on whether or not they read Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story, A Tell Tale Heart. Reading quizzes help motivate students to complete assigned reading assignments on time and therefore make a teacher's lesson plan more impactful.
Questions are one-word, or one-phrase short answer in order to maximize grading efficiency while also limiting a student's chance of guessing correctly. Questions are also developed to help teachers determine to what extent students understood the assigned reading as well as help students brainstorm pre-discussion thoughts and opinions about the reading.
In addition, all questions are cross-referenced on Cliffnotes, Sparknotes, & Shmoop. Therefore, any students who simply read a summary of the text will not be successful. Ultimately, this will help encourage all students to read their assigned text and not take short-cuts.
If uninterested in reading quizzes, these quetions can be used as post-reading Text Dependent Questions (TDQs) to ensure students go back through the text and re-read key sections.
Quiz questions come complete with answer key.
