This comprehensive assessment evaluates students' authentic knowledge of ten challenging/relevant words as used in Dashiell Hammett's novel The Maltese Falcon. In the first two sections of the quiz, students will be presented with sets of synonyms (three words per set) and antonyms (three words per set), and they will be responsible for matching a vocabulary word to the appropriate synonyms and antonyms. The next section requires students to read sentences that include deliberate context clues. They must then fill in each of the blanks with the word that best completes the sentence. With the remaining five words (not used in the sentence completion portion), they are asked to compose their own definitions.
