Roald Dahl's short story Lamb to the Slaughter depicts a housewife's' dramatic response to her husband's decision to leave her. Great story with a surprising twist. This reading quiz is designed to assess not only plot comprehension, but characterization analysis, theme and overall analysis of the short story and context clues for vocabulary. Included is multiple choice and short answer questions. I have used for both middle and high school levels depending upon student reading levels.
