This is the directions sheet for a response to Shakespeare criticism. This assignment was pared down to be a bite size paper where the focus was on reading and understanding literary criticism.
Originally used for a sophomore class after reading "A Midsummer Night's Dream", but it can easily be used for an assignment during any Shakespeare Unit; simply select articles which fit your content.
Suggestion: I chose 2-3 articles which were applicable to the content and distributed them to the students according to reading levels and complexity of argument.
Bonus: I have added the example/anchor response for FREE on my product page if you would like to see the resulting paper.
