The short essay questions evaluate not only whether students have read the material, but also how well they understand and can apply it. They require more thought than multiple choice questions, but are shorter than the essay questions. The Multiple Choice Questions in this lesson plan will test a student's recall and understanding of Ubik. Use these questions for quizzes, homework assignments or tests. The questions are broken out into sections, so they focus on specific chapters within Ubik. This allows you to test and review the book as you proceed through the unit.
- Ubik Chapter Abstracts for Teachers.
- Im Over All That: and Other Confessions!
- Halloween, Is It For Real?.
- The New Hume Debate.
- Ubik Lesson Plans for Teachers;
- Methamphetamine And Ice (Parent Guides To Childhood Drug Use Book 7).
- Culture libre (French Edition).
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 Ubik 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 Ubik.
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 Ubik lesson plan.

Philip K Dick's Ubik: a masterpiece of malleability
Mid-Book Test - Hard. Final Test - Hard. Maybe he never got out of his apartment after his argument with the door. Maybe all the confusion is just inside his head?
The appeal of that last theory is that you could use it, like Ubik, to clear up nearly all the incidents in the book. It's just a shame that this house of cards is blown apart by that wonderful final chapter, which is told from Runciter's perspective, and notes his alarm when Chip's face starts appearing on his money …. At which point, I give up. If anyone has a coherent summary that wraps up all the conflict in the novel, I'd love to hear it, but I suspect the task is impossible. Not, I should stress, through any fault on the author's part.
This is a book that gives real meaning to the cliche "defies explanation". Like reality — what we see as reality, anyway — Ubik doesn't make much coherent sense. The unease, the difficulty, the contradictions are partly the point. It's all about the realisation that things aren't as they seem — that everything you thought you knew is wrong. As reading group contributor Mexican2 puts it:. For want of a better word, I'd say "squishy" is ideal. You can't get a firm grip on Ubik.
Try and squeeze it, and it moves. The more you look at it, the more it changes shape. I'm amazed Philip K Dick managed to keep it still long enough to get it on the page at all.
He blows up … At which point, I can hand the narrative baton over to Runciter himself. Late on in the book, he states boldly: We got lured to Luna. We let Pat Conley come with us, a woman we didn't know, a talent we didn't understand — which possibly even Hollis didn't understand.
An ability somehow connected with time reversion; not strictly speaking, the ability to travel through time … for instance, she can't go into the past either; what she does, as near as I can comprehend it, is start a counter-process that uncovers the prior stages inherent in configurations of matter. He says it was actually Chip who almost died in the explosion on the moon: According to Ubik, people who, like Runciter's wife, have spent years in cold sleep are well aware of the fact.
It is another matter with those who, like Joe Chip, have come close to meeting with a violent end and have regained consciousness imagining that they have escaped death, whereas in fact they are resting in a moratorium. In the book, it must be admitted, this is an unclear point, which is however masked by another dilemma: So if someone communicates with the frozen one, as Runciter does with Chip, this contact is accompanied in Chip's experiences by uncanny and startling phenomena. Lem goes on and on: But, to go a step further, is not contact also possible between two frozen individuals?
Might not one of these people dream that he is alive and well and that from his accustomed world he is communicating with the other one — that only the other person succumbed to the unfortunate mishap?
