This 44-page bundle includes 11 total quizzes covering the entire novel Watership Down. There is a total of 97 multiple choice questions and 49 short answer questions. This includes:
1. 5 reading quizzes covering several chapters (approximately 100 pages of the book) each
2. TWO VERSIONS of each reading quiz--a multiple choice version and a short answer version
3. 1 SAT-style close reading quiz of a passage from Watership Down
4. All answer keys, including detailed notes on the short answer quiz keys
The reading quizzes are meant to assess literal comprehension of the main plot events and characters, although there are few questions asking students to apply literary terms. You may choose to give only multiple choice quizzes, only short answer quizzes, or a combination. The short answer quizzes can also be used as a during reading study guide to help students focus on the important events and characters.
The SAT-style quiz asks students to close read and analyze a passage from the novel and requires them to apply literary terms, infer, understand vocabulary in context, and choose appropriate evidence to support their analyses. This quiz is appropriate for pre- or post-assessment, or for formative assessment during the reading. Please note that this quiz is multiple choice only and although the passage it is based upon is clearly indicated, it is not provided in this resource due to copyright constraints. Students will need the passage to take the quiz, so you can either provide them a handout which you create, or you may allow them to refer to their copies of the book.
