One thing that I liked to do with "Mockingbird" was to have the students write a newspaper. Someone could report about Tom Robinson's trial; another article on the Social Page could describe Aunt Alexandra's tea for the Missionary society; another article would report the snow; the fire at Miss Maudie's; rabies and Tim Johnson; the upcoming pageant to be held at the school; and, even Bob Ewell's "accidental" death, among other things. This is a great review, and writing exercise.
When we did a collection of stories from The Odyssey, I had the kids draw comic strips with stick figures, speech bubbles and captions. Extra points were given if students colored the pictures with colored pencils. Then they passed them around the room—another form of review.
For a unit test, I made up a Jeopardy! game, with a total of ten categories. In Hamlet, for example, you can use categories such as "Characters," "Do I Die?," "Plot," "Villains," "Heroes," "Victims," combinations of two (Villains/Victims, for example), etc. Five categories were set up as regular Jeopardy! Half way through class, I would switch to Double Jeopardy! I used the overhead and had reusable overhead transparencies: they were permanently printed (from my printer) with "dollar" amounts, but the subject area could be filled in and wiped off each time I used it. When a question had been asked, it was crossed off on the transparency with an overhead marker. I bought a Hands-Down game (by Milton Bradley), and used the "hands" with four groups. If all four students answered, they were asked to keep their hands on the "game-hands" so I could see who was first. If the first person could not answer it, it would go to the second student and so on. Students were not required to answer in the form of the question. Teams did not lose points for wrong answers, but only earned points with correct answers. With five minutes left in the class, I would review any questions we did not get to. Not all questions would be on the test, but all test questions were included in the game. The kids always love Jeopardy days.
