Materials for Gone, the first novel in Michael Grant's wildly popular dystopian Gone series for young adults.
Dystopian young adult novels, such as The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, are becoming more and more popular among middle school and high school students. I've created a series of quizzes and reviews for some of these more modern novels, and give my students a choice of novels for independent reading.
Gone would pair especially well with William Golding's Lord of the Flies, as the novels are thematically similar.
Reading the classic novel and the more modern novel side-by-side helps the students understand Golding's message better as well as understanding that books, even enjoyable ones, can be used to send a message about humanity and society.
This Microsoft Word document contains four quizzes: the first two quizzes contain 20 character matching and plot multiple choice questions for the first half of the novel. These two versions can be used in different sections of your class, to prevent copying, or the second version can be used as a makeup quiz. The third and fourth quizzes are 20-question multiple choice quizzes on the second half of the novel. The questions are mostly fact and plot-based, with a few inference questions.
The file also contains a set of more personal discussion questions to be completed after the first half of the novel, and a review sheet to be completed at the end of the novel.
Answer keys are included for the multiple choice quizzes. Answers for the discussion questions and review chart may vary.
