This file includes 18 multiple choice reading check quizzes for Neal Shusterman's UnWind.
Each quiz contains 5 multiple choice questions and 1 bonus short response question: A total of 90 multiple choice and 18 short answer. The multiple choice questions are mostly character analysis and plot recall. The short response questions ask the kids to make text-to-self and text-to-world connections.
When I assign a section of the text for the kids to read for homework, I also assign them short answer questions that go along with the reading. Then, the following class period, we start class with a quick quiz assessing how much they retained from the reading. It not only refreshes their memories and gets them ready for the classwork, it also helps me know who read and who may have just copied the homework answers from a friend. If they read, they will very likely get a 100% on the quiz.
At the end of the unit, I copy and paste many of these quiz questions onto the final test and add more short answer, matching and true/false. These quizzes are a great way for the kids to review for that final test.
Each quiz takes up a 1/2 sheet of paper. So, there are 2 quizzes on each paper (2 vertical columns). This saves paper and ink when printing. Simply print and cut the papers up the middle. Each student will get 1/2 a piece of paper.
Here is the break-down of the chapter quizzes:
