This product is a comprehension quiz that goes with the story, Heart and Soul, by Kadir Nelson. This quiz contains 10 questions that are meant to be easy to answer IF students pay attention to the story and any discussions.
How I have used this product in my classroom:
I read Heart and Soul, by Kadir Nelson, every year throughout the month of February as my main read aloud. It takes about 12 days total to read, as I only read a chapter a day. Each day, we discuss the chapter and reflect on the events that it discussed. When I come to a chapter that mentions one of our questions, we talk about it in detail. Every day after that, I pretty much read the question aloud (in my own words or even straight from the quiz) and the class will answer as a whole. Even if students are absent, they will be able to answer every question on the quiz correctly if they pay attention. I designed this not to trick my class, but to use as a comprehension/management tool. 1) If they know there is a quiz at the end of the book, they will be more likely to pay attention and contribute to discussions; 2) If we go over these questions every day for a month (as we come to each chapter), they will be more likely to remember them long after we are done.
I hope this is helpful!
