Product Description
This test shows students that Jon Krakauer had to interpret all of McCandless's artifacts and interactions with others to piece together the story of Into the Wild. Students must use Krakauer's material to tell the other side of the story. Provided are four of Krakauer's beliefs; students must provide three quotes that support Krakauer's ideas and three quotes that challenge Krakauer's ideas. Quotations should stand on their own; each quote should make its own point and serve as an argument.

It is easy to grade because it is a condensed version of an essay. Each quotation is weighted the same; I take the number correct out of 12. If the quote doesn't clearly prove/disprove the statement, it is wrong.

There are two versions of the test provided, but you could require students to respond to all four statements. All of the statements can be debated beforehand. This test REQUIRES that students take careful annotations (particularly depending on how much time you allow. For two statements, I give 50 minutes.)
