This is a work of historical fiction to motivate and engage reluctant readers. Part of my Warriors of God series, it depicts a hapless monk caught up in a Viking raid who unwittingly becomes the hero.
It is a short reading that most middle school age students will finish in about fifteen to twenty minutes of reading. If you include the questions, the activity will take around thirty minutes.
A set of twenty multiple choice questions are included that are focused not only on recall of the story but also on literary terms they know from their English or Language Arts class. If you find this useful you may also enjoy my youtube comparing the Viking and the Maya. Search out my channel by jondherman. Herman's Histories thanks you.
