If you are reading the play and would like a structured sheet for students to complete, this is a great resource.

First Page: As you read the play aloud, students can jot down their initial quick answers and page numbers to the questions. Afterwards, and as an option you can assign certain table to answer 2 of the questions at a time and then share their answers.

Cooperative Learning Protocol you could use: Expert Group, Numbered Heads - have each set of tables responsible for 2 questions. After they answer one of the students from each group moves and "teaches" that table the answer. The table then "teaches" the visitor, When time is up, the traveling "teacher"moves to the next table and repeats the process.

Second Page: Exit Slip - Expository Response connecting the scene to the 8 thematic words - students must use textual evidence in response!!
