This download combines three popular items in one: The 59-question Big Ol' Huck Finn Test, the Notes on Mark Twain, and the Notes on Mark Twain's Style.
59 multiple choice (some T/F) questions make this one big ol' Huck Finn test. If you want to see what your students remember from reading the novel, this test should do the trick.
While most of my own novel tests in the last few years have become more about reading a section and testing reading skills, there is something to be said for expecting students to actually read a novel that has been assigned AND be able to recall a few events from the novel. Honestly, when I taught this novel, I did not have this test available (my wife created it a couple years later), so I had to have faith students would read. The problem is that faith and encouragement won't get the job done as readily as the potential for failing a major unit test. Therefore, I'd recommend at least having one of these tests available for every novel you read.
This one is for Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but it's OK if you got here because you spelled it Huckelberry Phin or Fin, or Marc Twain. OR if you searched for an easy scantron or multiple-choice test, since that's what it is.
The Notes on Mark Twain:
If you've ever wanted to present some background information on Mark Twain and wanted the kids to pay attention (because they have the worksheet in front of them with the blanks to fill in), then this is your download. The document covers 22 major points about Twain's life, and each point has an average of 2-3 blanks for students to fill in as you speak eloquently about the author.
You can easily turn the facts into a Powerpoint or Prezi with the same sheet as a handout for students to pay attention.
For this introduction, it does not matter whether you're teaching Tom Sawyer in middle school or Huck Finn in college. It's just about the author, Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain. And about making your students pay attention for a few minutes.
The Notes on Mark Twain's Style:
If you want to teach your students more than just the biography of Mark Twain, this download provides a fill-in-the-blank notetaking opportunity for students while learning about Twain's writing style.
15 major points about Twain as a writer, each with 1-3 blanks to fill in. It's a good way to make sure they're paying attention. Plus, it's ready to be made into a stellar PowerPoint.
There are a few points that mention Huck and Tom specifically, but it's really mostly about the author.
