This quiz requires students to demonstrate understanding of character, conflict, plot, and theme using important quotes from Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels. The quotes are from the middle third of the novel, so you have time to introduce your students to Literary Quote Analysis and practice as a class. Once students understand how to write these constructed responses, they take about five minutes apiece. That makes this a 15-20 minute quiz.
Create a class set of the quiz (choose whether to offer extra credit). Give each student an answer sheet OR have students complete this on notebook paper and draw their own mini-rubrics by each question. You can choose 2 or 3 answers per page, depending on how much space you want to give your students.
I’ve included an editable PPT with real answers from my students as a key. You can use this as-is, edit this to include the best answers from your students, or write your own.
What You Get:
1. Quotes Quiz - 1/2 sheet with extra credit option
2. Quotes Quiz - 1/2 sheet without extra credit option
3. Student Answer Sheet with rubric

Aside from the PPT, this product is not editable. Thank you for understanding!
