Use these questions for quizzes, homework assignments or tests.
The questions are broken out into sections, so they focus on specific chapters within The Joy Luck Club. This allows you to test and review the book as you proceed through the unit. Typically, there are questions per chapter, act or section. Use the Oral Reading Evaluation Form when students are reading aloud in class. Pass the forms out before you assign reading, so students will know what to expect. You can use the forms to provide general feedback on audibility, pronunciation, articulation, expression and rate of speech. You can use this form to grade students, or simply comment on their progress.
Use the Writing Evaluation Form when you're grading student essays. This will help you establish uniform criteria for grading essays even though students may be writing about different aspects of the material. By following this form you will be able to evaluate the thesis, organization, supporting arguments, paragraph transitions, grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. They pull questions from the multiple choice and short essay sections, the character and object descriptions, and the chapter abstracts to create worksheets that can be used for pop quizzes, in-class assignments and homework.
Periodic homework assignments and quizzes are a great way to encourage students to stay on top of their assigned reading. They can also help you determine which concepts and ideas your class grasps and which they need more guidance on. By pulling from the different sections of the lesson plan, quizzes and homework assignments offer a comprehensive review of The Joy Luck Club in manageable increments that are less substantial than a full blown test.
Use the Test Summary page to determine which pre-made test is most relevant to your students' learning styles. This lesson plan provides both full unit tests and mid-unit tests. You can choose from several tests that include differing combinations of multiple choice questions, short answer questions, short essay questions, full essay questions, character and object matching, etc. Some of the tests are designed to be more difficult than others. Some have essay questions, while others are limited to short-response questions, like multiple choice, matching and short answer questions.
If you don't find the combination of questions that best suits your class, you can also create your own test on The Joy Luck Club. If you want to integrate questions you've developed for your curriculum with the questions in this lesson plan, or you simply want to create a unique test or quiz from the questions this lesson plan offers, it's easy to do.
Scroll through the sections of the lesson plan that most interest you and cut and paste the exact questions you want to use into your new, personalized The Joy Luck Club lesson plan.

Welcome back. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. No advance set-up or materials required. Each of the four lesson plans is highly theatrical! While I have degrees in Secondary Education and Literature, the vast majority of my classroom experience is as a teaching artist. You see, I'm an actor. I believe very strongly in the ability of theatrical techniques to engage students with text more deeply. These lesson plans have been tested in the toughest of New York City classrooms.
They work. And even though the lesson plans contained herein require no acting ability, I am indeed a real actor.
A small-time one, but an actor nonetheless. You can read about acting dreams coming true in my book: Places, Please! Becoming A Jersey Boy. The lesson plans in this collection can be taught quickly in one period, or stretched out over many days for a more thorough exploration.
They are purposely adjustable, and can be used with either a portion of the text or as an analysis of the text as a whole. I've listed the Common Core Anchor Standards that are specifically connected to each lesson plan.
While I feel the plans touch upon many more strands of the Common Core, the Anchor Standards listed are the ones directly addressed in the lesson. I should also mention that each of these plans is available separately in the bookstore, but buying them together in this collection makes them much more of a bargain; four for the price of three, I think. Let us continue to transform classrooms into places of creative, high-level engagement!
