CAUTION: The MISUSE of this INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH PRODUCT can and will do harm to the current fragile state of your students' reading motivation. It is designed to be used sparingly and with great care. The preview file contains step-by-step directions for the delivery of a close reading lesson on the assassination scene, Act III, Scene 1, questions 1-24. Please read, understand, and follow instructions carefully.
The zip file contains .doc and .pdf versions of the study guide for the entire play.
Reading is inherently rewarding, and the challenge of reading something difficult helps us all grow. Allow kids to find that out for themselves - and don't go away with the wrong impression - I never give all of these questions to my students!
Download the FREE stuff and try some of it. You'll save yourself work and create an educationally sound, intrinsically rewarding reading experience that will motivate kids to read. (You can also use these questions to create large and small group lessons in your classroom.)
