You know the drill. You give your class a chapter for a novel to read for homework, or maybe you start reading a chapter together in class and then you want your students to finish the chapter as homework. The next day arrives and (maybe) a third of the class has actually done the reading. Most of the kids sit there, silently praying that a more studious kid will answer your questions.
Enough of this.
The solution to make sure those “I’m just along for the ride” kids actually do the homework reading? The One-Question Quizzer.
Use this package of One-Question Quizzers to take your class through every chapter of John Steinbeck's masterpiece, Of Mice & Men. These questions are designed to reward active readers and to reveal those who didn’t read or just relied on SparkNotes or CliffNotes to try to take a shortcut. Only students who actively read the chapter will be able to correctly answer the question.
Also, I’ve included three separate questions for each chapter because teenagers will cheat (What? Shocking, I know.) and tell their friends in other classes what question you asked.
Package includes one page of detailed instructions and two pages of chapter-by-chapter questions covering Steinbeck's novella, Of Mice and Men.

Please note that these quizzers are included in my money-saving FOUR WEEK UNIT covering Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. No need to purchase this lesson separately if you've already own the Of Mice and Men bundle.
