Literature Circles Test

You should know what these things are for your test on Wednesday:

  • protagonist/antagonist
  • conflict: internal vs. external
  • other major characters in the story
  • one-dimensional/three-dimensional characters

In addition, you will also have some other interpretation questions to answer based on what you thought about the book.

Remember: you will be allowed to use your book and the biggest thing you need to know for the test is that you need to write your answers in COMPLETE SENTENCES! If you don't heed this instruction, most people will lose points for this and not getting answers wrong.
