How can you assess if your students are reading the text? Daily reading quizzes are the answer. They will help you assess comprehension and will also increase fluency. This PowerPoint contains 88 slides with daily reading quizzes and activities including Spanish terms to define and an allusion list. Each quiz has a key (located in the "notes" section of the slide).
I use daily reading quizzes with every novel that I teach, and they are always a starting point for my lesson. They get students reading and create an easy way to transition into a whole group discussion where we dig deeper and analyze the assigned pages.
