Do you want to get away from boring chapter quizzes!? We've all given them, but they are almost always comprehension checks, and don't require deeper thinking.
These quizzes get you away from the repetitive, and give you flexibility in when to use them, and scaffolded options for your students!
Here are FIVE great options for your students:
Reading Check Questions -- Students create their own questions about the text, and describe their favorite scene in detail.
Reading Check Questions -- Written responses for character description, important event, and symbolism.
Reading Check Questions -- Written responses for plot elements (setting, complications), character description, and prediction.
Reading Check Outline -- Students plot out their responses in outline form. Real-life connection with a character.
Reading Check Character Map -- Students fill out a bubble map to include character description (adjectives), context, quotes or paraphrases from that character, and how the quote connects to characterization.
Questions are worded in such a way that you would be able to use the quizzes for any chapter, with any text!
You could also use these for book report checks, lit circles, or HW.
