The photo? OK, it's not a dead pig's head; it's the head of our dead dog, Cookie. She wasn't dead when the picture was taken, of course. Oh, but she was a naughty, naughty little chocolate lab, was Cookie. She was always contrary, always disobedient, but charming too in her own way, constantly trying to get you to do some wicked little thing.
6 quizzes; 12 questions each; additional page with all answer keys
All of my quizzes are designed to be fair but challenging for students. They are also produced to be easily corrected by teachers, whose valuable time is better spent evaluating essays and providing feedback for them, than checking whether kids have been reading.
Unless otherwise indicated, my quizzes are written to check some adequate level of understanding after an initial reading. That is the case with these quizzes. However, they are also formulated to be used in conjunction with my close reading study guides as well. Please search my products to find the study guides that go with these quizzes. Additional information can be found in their product description.
I began teaching in 1975 and retired in 2007. Early in that 32 years, I tried using all sorts of educational materials created by other experts. I did not consider myself an educational expert of any kind at that time, but I definitely had a pretty clear notion of what materials I actually needed to make my style of teaching successful. Six or seven years into the profession, still unable to find anything that really fit, I finally started cutting my own path and producing my own materials. That adventure led me to success.
