This 6 page exam was designed using higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy to assess student understandings and application of skills in the Novel, Touching Spirit Bear, by Ben Mikaelsen. This novel is rich in literary qualities to help students develop and demonstrate their understanding of the following: Theme, Figurative Language, Mood/Tone, Symbolism, Quotation Analysis, and Real-world Applications.
This summative exam will help you to establish strong learning targets and scaffolded guidance while reading the novel and discovering literary qualities that add so much power to the author's words. I have used this exam in whole, as well as a leveled exam for learners by cutting and pasting sections into an A, B, or C format. It may also be used in sections as Warm-Ups, Exit Slips, with partners at stations, or as an independent literature study for higher level learners.
