This is a brief, 9-question reading quiz on pages 244-278 of Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming. The quiz does not require any literary analysis from the students; it tests only reading comprehension. Of the nine questions, two are true/false, while the other seven ask for short free response answers that will range in length from one word to 1-2 sentences.
Please note that this quiz covers 34 pages of the book.
The answer key provides not only the answers but also the page numbers on which the answers can be found (All page numbers given here come from the Puffin Books paperback edition, ISBN # 9-780-147-51582-7). After my students take the quiz, I review the answers with them, which gets them thumbing through their books and noticing details. This process gets the students used to referring to the text and also prepares them to notice details for future quizzes.
