The Summer of the Swans by Betsy Byars
The Summer of the Swans Chapter-by-Chapter Objective Tests
The series of objective tests check for basic story comprehension The quizzes (multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, matching style) cover the novel chapter-by-chapter and as a whole book test.
The questions are written to draw attention to plot sequence, cause and effect, character traits and motivation, story clues, and implied meaning. Awareness of the facts is the targeted goal. Students will need to read the material carefully and thoroughly in order for them to score well on these quizzes.
These tests do not require story interpretation nor do they address elements of literature. Instead, they build a strong foundation for progression to the higher level thinking skills.
The Summer of the Swans Objective Tests may also be put to use (in lieu of or in addition to their function as comprehension checks) as whole class discussion guides, small-group reading guides, homework study guides, and conferencing tools. They are reliable progress indicators for independent reading.
Full answer keys are included.
