You know the drill. You give your class a chapter of To Kill a Mockingbird to read for homework, or maybe you start reading a chapter together in class and then you want your students to finish the chapter as homework. The next day arrives and (maybe) a third of the class has actually done the reading. Most of the kids sit there, silently praying that a more studious kid will answer your questions.

Enough of this.

The solution to make sure those “I’m just along for the ride” kids actually do the homework reading? The One-Question Quizzer!

Use this set of One-Question Quizzers to take your class through every chapter of Harper Lee’s classic, To Kill a Mockingbird. These questions are designed to reward active readers and to reveal those who didn’t read or just relied on SparkNotes or CliffNotes to try to take a shortcut. Only students who actively read the chapters will be able to correctly answer the question.

Also, I’ve included three separate questions for each chapter because teenagers will cheat (What? Shocking, I know.) and tell their friends in other classes what question you asked.

Package includes one page of detailed instructions and seven pages of chapter-by-chapter questions covering all 31 chapters of To Kill a Mockingbird.
