Here is a unique way to assess your students' understanding of Hurston's "Their Eyes . . . " This is a 21-question exam that uses the Beatles album "Rubber Soul" as a basis for either an exam or discussion with your students after they have read the novel. The premise is simple - play a song then pose the questions to the students - I have used this in my classroom and it is a fun and interesting way to end the unit on the novel.
