These are short answer quizzes to ensure students are reading the material.
Modern World History - McDougal Litttell
I have my students number their paper from 1 to 5.
Normally answers are either a couple words or one short sentence.
ALL ANSWERS CAN BE FOUND IN THE BOOK.
While I require all students to read the whole section, however, the questions normally come from the first three pages. You may want to change that depending on the level of your students and their ability to comprehend the material.
In addition, you may have to do a little changing to the chapter and section headers depending on the edition your school is using.
To make grading simpler I had my students do peer marking.
Each question is worth 20 points.
You may want to reword, change or clarify the questions (verbally) since I tried to keep all quizzes on one slide so they may not be 100% clear to all students.
These questions are just to ensure students are reading the required material prior to your lesson.
