Chapters 12 through 15 are crucial in shifting the focus of Harper Lee's TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD from the curiosity and development of Jem and Scout to the Tom Robinson case and its impact on the Finch family.
For this reason, it is important for students to slow down and notice the significance of character relationships, the introduction of new themes, mood changes, and the art of Lee's purposeful phrasing.
This set of Common Core-aligned, evidence-based selected response/passage analysis multiple choice questions guides students through a deeper reading of these essential chapters while also adding a fun, movement-driven "challenge" aspect to the reading literature standards.
A classroom quiz quest requires students to journey through a pre-determined path of analytical questions. Each time a student or pair of students selects one of the multiple choice answers, they are directed to the question they should answer next. Answering all questions correctly will enable them to successfully complete their journey, visit every question, and return to their seats. They will know if they make a mistake because they will be sent back to a question they already answered. Thus, in addition to being a fun challenge for students, the assignment is also self-checking for minimal teacher grading!
