PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Creative Reading Quizzes for Any Novel: ELA 6-9

In this packet you’ll find five fun reading check quizzes. These quizzes, useful for any novel, ask students to demonstrate their understanding of the text through critical thinking and creative writing instead of through fact memorization. Each quiz can be graded quickly, using the grading system included on each.

What’s inside:

“Dinner Party”: This handout invites students to show their understanding of the reading by writing the script of a dinner conversation between several of the characters.

“The Book Beside your Bed” : This handout invites students to write a blog entry about the reading, as if reviewing the book for students around the world. Since they are asked to prove to other students why the text is or is not worth reading, they must share important details of the book, proving that they have (or have not) read the text.

“What’s in your Inbox?”: For this short quiz, students are asked to write an e-mail from one character to another, describing the events of the previous night’s reading with sufficient detail to make it clear they have done the reading.

“The High and the Low” : This handout guides students in showing their understanding of the reading by asking them to describe their favorite and least favorite parts. They might choose a character, event, or even the writing style, but the main thing is that they provide the details to show that they really did read!

“Extra! Extra! Read all about it!” : This quiz invites students to invent five headlines to describe events in the previous night’s reading, including a short description of why each headline would be fitting.
