Product Description
This reading quiz covers "Part One" of the novel Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys. The file contains two 10-question versions and an answer key.

I use this type of quiz in my own classroom in order to thwart online summaries available on sites like Sparknotes and Shmoop. When I assign reading, I want my students to actually read the text of the novel. Therefore, instead of quiz questions that focus on general plot and characterization, this type of quiz focuses on: (1) proper nouns (like the names of minor characters and places in the setting), (2) numbers of things, (3) lists (like naming one of the items on a shelf), (4) colors, and (5) other specific details that should be apparent after a night of close reading. My intent is not to trick students and force them to resort to recording long lists of minutiae; instead, it’s to encourage them to read closely, critically, and consciously so that they consider the choices the author is making. We can then discuss the effect or impact of these choices during a follow-up class discussion (but first I need a means of encouraging students to read).

If you would prefer to purchase a discounted bundle containing quizzes for both "Part One" and "Part Two," it can be found at the following link: Wide Sargasso Sea Quizzes (Parts One and Two)
