This thirty-four page resource for teaching Mark Twain's classic tale is a series of objective tests that cover the novel as chapter-by-chapter quizzes and as a whole book test. Students will find it necessary to read the material carefully and thoroughly for FACTUAL CONTENT in order to score well on these tests. In addition to their function as a method for checking story comprehension, these pages also work nicely as WHOLE-CLASS DISCUSSION GUIDES, SMALL-GROUP or INDEPENDENT READING GUIDES, HOMEWORK, or CONFERENCING TOOLS. They are also a valuable MANAGEMENT RESOURCE for a reading program that involves the use of multiple titles in one classroom.
This material DOES NOT REQUIRE STORY INTREPRETATION nor does it address ELEMENTS OF LITERATURE. Instead, it motivates students to practice thoughtful reading and build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
FULL ANSWER KEYS and two pages of rationale/teaching suggestions are included. Download the free preview pages for a closer look.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A teacher who is using the FREE INTERNET DOWNLOAD of this book has called to report a glitch in the electronic file. Beginning with chapter XVII (17) the THE ORIGINAL BOOK CHAPTERS AND THE ELECTRONIC CHAPTERS DO NOT MATCH.
