Each test has multiple choice questions and at least one question on each of the tests is a text dependent short answer question. Answer keys are provided for each test. These tests are ready for you to print and use! The best part is that once you buy this bundle, you can save it to your computer and use these tests for years to come!
Take a look at the list below to see all that is in this bundle. Everything is ready for you to use in your classroom today. The best part is that once you purchase this bundle, you can reuse it every year!

Vocabulary – Students are given a list of vocabulary terms from each section. They use a dictionary to define each word. After they define the terms and you discuss the meanings as a class, you may want to have students use the words in their own sentences.
Vocabulary Quizzes– There is a vocabulary quiz for each set of words. NOTE – These quizzes are isolated from the chapter tests so that the teacher can use them as works best for his/her classroom.
Tests – A test is provided for chapters 1-6, 7-12, 13-18, 19-24, and 25-30. Each test has multiple choice questions and at least one open-ended response question.
Venn diagram – There is a Venn diagram for students to use to compare and contrast Luke’s house to Jen’s house. (Chapter 14)
Allusion and Foreshadowing – Allusion is defined and students analyze two examples from the novel and determine what one example foreshadows.
“Good-Bye Luke” – Students are asked to think about what things Luke would most likely include in his suitcase if he could.
Theme – There are several handouts included to guide students in determining the theme of this story, including a handout with important tips when finding the theme.
Post-reading Questions –There are constructive response questions based on the story for students to answer.
Two short poetry activities are included as well.
Three short project type activities are included that can be completed individually or as a small group.
As another bonus, we have also included Signposts for the novel! Based on the book Notice and Note by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst, these handouts and charts will help your students become better readers! You can use these handouts with this story and with every novel and story you teach!
This is a game changer for the way you teach close reading. Included is a teacher packet and a student packet with handouts that explain the six "signposts" of reading. Handouts are also included for you to find the signposts in Among the Hidden.
Answer keys are included in the teacher packet. We guarantee you're going to LOVE this, and you will be able to use these handouts with every other story and novel you read all year!
