This quiz packet for the novel A Wrinkle in Time provides three separate quizzes that cover the entire classic novel by Madeleine L'Engle, focusing on four chapters at a time. Vocabulary lists for practice and review are included, and answer keys are provided.
This novel features a great deal of challenging vocabulary. Each vocabulary list presents 12-20 vocabulary words and gives the page numbers where they are found. Each list suggests different learning activities for studying that group of words. Each quiz also includes 8-12 basic comprehension questions, highlighting significant events in the plot (no "gotcha" questions!).
Finally, each assessment requires some open-ended responses. Literary concepts such as science fiction, plot, theme, and character development are part of these responses. Several open-ended responses invite students to respond to quotes from the novel, supporting their viewpoints by referring to the text.
If you would like the Microsoft Word file as a companion to the PDF, allowing you to modify and personalize the tested vocabulary or other items, I will be happy to e-mail it to you free of any additional charges. Just send your request to me at scampbell (at) lfschools.org.
