You know the drill. You give your class a chapter for a novel to read for homework, or maybe you start reading a chapter together in class and then you want your students to finish the chapter as homework. The next day arrives and (maybe) a third of the class has actually done the reading. Most of the kids sit there, silently praying that a more studious kid will answer your questions.

Enough of this.

The solution to make sure those “I’m just along for the ride” kids actually do the homework reading? The One-Question Quizzer.

Use this package of One-Question Quizzers to take your class through every chapter of The Great Gatsby. These questions are specially designed to reward active readers and to reveal those who didn’t read or just relied on SparkNotes or CliffNotes to try to take a shortcut. Only students who actively read the chapter will be able to correctly answer the question.

Also, I’ve included three separate questions for each chapter because teenagers will cheat (What? Shocking, I know.) and tell their friends in other classes what question you asked.

Package includes one page of detailed instructions and three pages of chapter-by-chapter questions covering F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, The Great Gatsby.
