This is a brief, 8-question quiz on Act I, scenes 1-2 of August Wilson’s Fences. Each question asks for a short answer (ranging in length from a single word or phrase to 2-3 sentences). This quiz does not ask for any literary analysis from students – just basic comprehension of the plot, characters, and setting of the play. Taking quizzes like this one routinely helps make students more focused readers, and reviewing the quiz together as a class after the students have handed them in makes for an excellent transition into class discussion.
The answer key provides not only answers but also page numbers on which the answers can be found. Please note that all page numbers refer to the Plume/Penguin edition, ISBN# 978-0-452-26401-4).
