This download contains eight reading questions over the following chapter of O'Brien's novel, The Things They Carried: Notes, In the Field, Good Form, and Field Trip.
The reading questions address the symbolism and themes of the chapters. The questions are not simply reading comprehension questions. The students will be asked to state opinions, make inferences, and explain what they read. I used this assignment for my AP junior classes. It took them about an hour and a half to complete the assignment after reading the novel.
