Reading Quizzes

"Trust, but verify"  (Old Russian Proverb)

Reading quizzes serve many purposes - but chief among them are: 1) Get students to do the reading (students are faced every day with many choices of what to do and not do - if they are not quizzed - the majority (by these upper grade levels) will not do the reading  2)Identify students who ARE doing the reading but not comprehending (and so intervention and a plan to improve that situation can occur)   3) Give students credit for the work (the reading) that they've done.
