This is a collection of my fiction/literature ACT-style reading quizzes. All of these are available separately or as part of a unit on TpT, but this puts them all in one place at one price. All you need is the books, available at your local library.
Here's what you get:
- Two 10-question tests on To Kill a Mockingbird
- A 17-question test on A Summer Life
- Three 10-question tests on The House on Mango Street
- Three tests on Catcher in the Rye (5-question, 8-question, and 10-question)
That's a total of 90 ACT reading test questions with answers!
Use these quizzes in the classroom or as an ACT Test prep. Works as prep for the SAT, too, as well as any state Common Core or College and Career Readiness tests. The best part is that you can use these in the context of teaching the entire novel or just while using the specific chapters in relation to what you are doing in class.
On top of that, you can cover multicultural lit, female lit, race relations lit, Southern lit, and rich white kid in a boarding school lit.
You can also get a site license for all your teachers so that you can use one or more of the quizzes as your department pre or post assessments.
Since it takes about 2 hours to write each 10-question quiz using ACT-type questions, you'll be saving you and your English department nearly 20 hours of work. And administrators, instead of mandating teachers come up with test like this on their own, how about asking your English department if a test pack like this might be useful.
Here's a sample question from To Kill a Mockingbird:
7. (p 10) According to the paragraph that begins with, “The other boys attended,” one of the boys works his way through engineering school at Auburn because:
A. His parents lock him away.
B. He is not punished for his crimes.
C. He attended the industrial school as punishment.
D. His grandfather was the dean of students at Auburn.
