This is a fun activity for the first couple of days in British Literature courses. This is not a graded assignment (or it can be graded for participation), but it is an excellent pre-assessment of prior knowledge of British culture and history. I typically have students fill out the quiz, collect them, and then go over the correct answers together. This has led to many fun conversations, revelations, and teachable moments.
This is also an excellent ice-breaker for students with whom you are already familiar, and so do not need to learn names or do introductions.
