Included are 17 multiple choice quizzes for the chapters of Jane Yolen's Novel, The Devil's Arithmetic. Each quiz has 5 multiple choice questions that test for reading comprehension. Some quizzes have bonus short answer questions. There are a total of 90 multiple choice questions and 14 bonus short answer questions in this file.
Each paper has 2 of the exact same quizzes on it. I did this to save trees while photocopying. Just print and cut the page up the middle (left/right).
I assign a chapter for homework and give them short answer questions to complete while reading. At the beginning of class the following day, I give these quizzes as the bell-ringer/do now (during the 1st 5 minutes of class) the next day. This helps me to determine what students actually did the reading, versus copying the homework answers from a friend. It also helps me to know what parts of the chapter I need to review before moving on with the day's lesson.
Answer key is included as a separate word document.
