Product Description

This time-saving instructional resource is a collection of quizzes for commonly taught works of literature, from Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” to August Wilson’s Fences. If you are looking for quick assessments and a convenient way to supplement your current materials for literary texts - or looking for models to help shape your own quizzes and tests - this low-cost collection of instructional materials may be just the thing for you.

All of the quizzes contain a multiple choice section and nearly all of them also offer short answer sections as well. An answer key is provided for each assessment along with several suggested scoring rubrics for short answer questions meant to facilitate quick grading and clear explanations of scores for students.

These quizzes are not the product of a corporation or a publishing house. They are all created by an English professor who uses these assessments in his own English classroom as reading checks, unit-ending assessments and preparation for essay assignments. Because these materials were not originally created as a book of quizzes and tests, please expect a degree of difference between the assessments. While they certainly are uniform in their emphasis on comprehension, interpretation, analysis and the application of literary terms, they just don’t all look the same.

The materials are formatted in printable form so that instructors can print and copy each assessment as needed.
