This is a 10-question multiple choice quiz (and key), useful as a reading check and springboard for discussion. The quiz covers three short works about major events shaping the world of the 1920s, as a way to preview The Great Gatsby:
-Susan B. Anthony speech, on women's suffrage (http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/anthony.htm);
-H.L. Mencken, on Prohibition (http://blogs.britannica.com/2010/04/the-dead-hand-of-puritanism/);
-Ernest Hemingway, on World War I
(the short story "Soldier's Home").
