Need a quiz over the novel that students can't pass just by reading a chapter summary?
Assess your students comprehension of the first three chapters of Tim O'Brien's classic Vietnam War novel The Things They Carried by engaging them in "thinking" questions. Quiz includes questions from "The Things They Carried," "Love," and "Spin." You'll see multiple choice questions in addition to short answer and fill-in-the-blank style questions that will challenge your readers with some advanced concepts like irony and paradox (no advanced study needed as they are explained in the questions!) Students will need to provide examples and details from the chapters to demonstrate their knowledge in the short answer responses. No chapter summaries will prepare them to think about the chapters like this!
