What a great choice to use Carson McCuller’s short story “Sucker”! In it, cousins, one sixteen and one twelve, share a bedroom together during the Depression years of the 1930s. They sleep in the same bed, yet emotionally they are miles apart. Both are deprived of attention and love, and both seek attention and love from someone who is unwilling or unable to oblige. This story is about how this situation affects these two boys and their relationship with each other. In this document, you will find a matching-style reading assessment that will surely challenge your students. HINT: Do not copy the quiz front to back. It will be better for the students to put page one and page two next to each other.
