Product Description
Students will argue that they have nothing in common with Shakespeare's characters!
This compatibility test will prove them wrong!


A compatibility test allows students to determine how similar their experiences and feelings are to Hamlet’s.

The activity shows students how universal the play is and points out that the conflicts and emotions that Hamlet has are common to all young adults.

Questions include:

--Have you ever questioned the judgment of a parent?

--Have you ever dated anyone whose parents disliked you?

--Have you ever sought revenge?

There are 40 questions.

Afterwards students count their “yes” responses and correlate the number with the character with whom they are most compatible.

Here’s the twist: they can be compared to Hamlet, Simba, or The Cat in the Hat (Green Eggs and Hamlet).

Those who score “Hamlet” are encouraged to enjoy the play; “Simbas” are pressed to pay close attention to discussions; and Cats in Hats are urged work really hard to just stay in the correct story (I’ve never had anyone scored in the “Cats” category).

These result descriptions add a little levity to the assignment after serious questions about the loss of a parent or friend, betrayal, and depression.

It’s a good balance.

My students always respond well to this activity.

It is a great way for reluctant Shakespeare scholars to recognize the relevance of the play.

Thank you for your consideration of this product.
