This 33-question multiple-choice quiz is divided into three sections that assess close reading and figurative language, inferencing, and vocabulary skills for the short story “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs. This way, teachers can measure student understanding of various skills and provide mini-lessons as necessary.
The story is a supernatural tale about an enchanted mummified monkey’s paw that grants its owner three wishes, but at a terrible price. It’s gothic theme and ongoing suspense through the text makes it a fun and interesting read for students.
