Product Description
The final test contains eight questions, each designed to provide the student with an opportunity to think—and write—critically about the entire work, on a broad range of topics that cover the major themes of the book, as well as the subject of Wright’s authorial style and the relevance of the book to today’s students. As written, the test requires students to choose two of the eight options and write two essays, in class, during one class period. Of course you could adjust this format in any way that conforms best to your needs. You could, for example, have students write on three or more of the topics—or only one. You could give them the questions the day before the test and take a class period to discuss and/or prewrite answers in advance. On the day of the test, you might also—and I’ve used this option many times—allow students to have the book in front of them while writing their essays.
