This quiz features 25 multiple choice questions which are geared towards skills-based learning. Some questions ask about the plot of the novel thus far, but many incorporate reading passages/small quotes and ask students to utilize their skills of reading comprehension, inferencing, and analysis of imagery, characterization, symbolism, etc., in order to analyze the correct answer.
After the 25 multiple choice questions, there is a written response portion which asks students to read two excerpts (one from Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild and the other from Ralph Waldo Emerson's Self Reliance). They are then to write a paragraph/constructed response in which they utilize quotations and analysis in order to explain the similarities of one passage to Siddhartha.
Each question is linked to a common core standard, which are included (with full descriptions) on the key. (you must be in the correct viewing mode to view comments, as standards are written as comments on the word doc.)
