This is a quiz that you can use on interactive whiteboards or SmartBoards to introduce your students to American literature (novel, poetry, play). It is a multiple choice game which helps them to find out how much they know about the topic. 35 questions about different authors and their works are a great start to teaching literature.
"Which novel begins with the words: 'Call me Ishamel.'?“
"Which author is considered to be the inventor of the short story?“
If the answer is correct, you get more information about the author and/or piece of work. If the answer is wrong, you are led back to the question.
After the game you can give the students a worksheet with questions on the aspects mentioned in the quiz (key included).
I played the game with my students in Germany and they had a lot of fun!
The game itself a PowerPoint file. The worksheet is pdf.
