This test (part of my Shades of Gray novel unit
is a great post-reading assessment for Carolyn Reeder's Reconstruction novel Shades of Gray. Nine questions are vocabulary-based (words from the story). Sixteen are multiple-choice questions about plot, character, motivation, setting, conflict, and theme, also covering additional reading skills like inference, cause and effect, and sequencing. At the end, there is a prompt for a paragraph response asking students to draw conclusions about the novel as a whole.
This is an excellent novel for teaching the Reconstruction period after the Civil War!
