Product Description

This document includes various resources related to Paul Theroux's novel The Mosquito Coast—specifically, a study guide, a set of content quizzes (with keys), a test (with key), a short writing assignment, and a number of sample student responses (with comprehensive edits) to elements of the novel. The sections of student responses are especially valuable not only for commentary they offer on Theroux's text but for instruction they supply in matters of developing writing skills generally.
