Product Description
Either you have a bunch of copies of this book because someone thought it would be a good book to have but never figured out how to fit it into your curriculum OR you're being told you need to teach the book but are not sure how.

My school district had cast it off as not being enough this or that. I'm not going to argue the literary merits of the book, but I will say that it worked well as a contrast to Pride and Prejudice when I taught that. Same basic issues; totally different way of handling them.

Anyhow, you want to or are forced to teach The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. What now? Whether it's a short trip to Chicago or a long vacation, these are the essential quizzes because they test actual reading skills as you skim through or read the short chapters. One question per chapter (often one page). I used ACT-like reading quizzes, complete with typical ACT or SAT distracters. Probably a mixed skill range, but this is the right kind of reading practice.

In fact, even if you didn't want to teach The House on Mango Street at all, these quizzes might change your mind. Good practice for the high-stakes tests without being random and irrelevant. If you can find a way for the themes in the story to relate to your class, then you have relevance rigor in one easily downloaded assignment.

If you like this one, you absolutely cannot miss my Catcher in the Rye reading quizzes, which I used as part of the same Film and Novel class, available at the Educabana store.
