This is a brief 10-question quiz designed to assess students’ basic comprehension of the first six chapters on Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild. The quiz does not measure analysis, and I recommend giving the quiz before any class discussions of the book. All ten questions require short free-response answers, which will range in length from words or brief phrases to 2-3 sentences. Taking this quiz and going over the answers is a great way for students to make a transition into a discussion of the novel.
The answer key lists answers to each question and the page number on which the answer appears. All page numbers given refer to the Anchor Books edition, ISBN # 978-0-307-38717-2.
Please note that I have another quiz posted on this book: a multiple-choice quiz that covers the whole novel. These two quizzes contain several questions in common, so I do not recommend buying both quizzes.
