This is a brief, 7-question quiz on chapters 1-6 of Tim O’Brien’s In the Lake of the Woods. This quiz asks objective questions related to plot, character, and setting and is meant to assess reading comprehension. No analysis or interpretation is expected of students. Of the seven questions, three are true/false, while the other four call for free responses ranging in length from one word or phrase to 2-3 sentences. Taking and reviewing this quiz at the beginning of class is a great way to make a transition into discussing and analyzing the reading.
Please note that this quiz covers 29 pages of reading.
The answer key provides not only answers but also the page numbers on which the answers can be found. All page numbers refer to the Penguin paperback edition, ISBN # 978-0-1402-5094-7.
