This open book quiz is not just memory recollection of plot points - this quiz challenges students to think critically about the novel events and character development.
True, there are 5 "recalling facts" questions at the start of this quiz; there are also 4 "critical thinking" questions that require students to make inferences about the novel.
Critical Thinking question example: "Olivia is a new character in this book. Olivia is not popular, cool, or beautiful. Why would the author choose to include Olivia as a character in this book?"
This open-book quiz takes my 9th grade Intensive Reading students one 50-minute class period to complete. A great "quiet day" activity!
