This King Lear Quote Quiz Pack, part of the Scholarly Shakespeare Series, provides all of the following resources regarding an assessment for important lines from the tragedy throughout Acts 1, 2, and 3:
Quote Quiz Preparation Packet (.pdf and .docx) - A list of 9 important quotes from the first three acts of the play. Students are asked to provide the speaker of the quote, to whom the lines were spoken, the basic meaning of the lines, and the greater significance of those lines to the play as a whole. Due dates and the date of the quiz are left as blanks on the .pdf version so you can fill them in, or you can edit and type them in for the .docx file.
Quote Quiz Preparation Answer Key (.pdf and .pptx) - The complete information for all 9 quotes from the Quote Quiz Preparation Packet, including the speaker of the quote, to whom the lines were spoken, the basic meaning of the lines, and the greater significance of those lines to the play as a whole. This is also provided in a slideshow file format if you would like to to use it by projecting it onto a whiteboard or SmartBoard for your students to see the answers in preparation for their quiz.
Quote Quiz (.pdf and .docx) - An assessment that has 5 of the 9 quotes from the preparation packet, in random order, where students are required to provide the speaker of the quote, to whom the lines were spoken, the basic meaning of the lines, and the greater significance of those lines to the play as a whole.
Quote Quiz Answer Key (.pdf and .pptx) - The answers to all 5 quotes from the quiz. The answers for this are identical to that of the preparation answer key, but with only the 5 quotes on the quiz, given in the order they are on the quiz. Just like the preparation answer key, this is provided in a slideshow format in case you’d like to have students trade-and-grade, or if you feel it would be easier for you to grade by using that format.
Quote Quiz with Student Choice of Five Quotes (.pdf and .docx) - A modified version of the assessment which allows students to choose the 5 quotes they would like to answer. All 9 quotes from the preparation packet are available to choose from. This can be used as a quiz for struggling readers or as an incentive for students in class. The preparation answer key can be used for the grading of all quotes students might choose.
Quote Quiz Partially Filled Out (.pdf and .docx) - A modified version of the assessment that utilizes the same 5 quotes as the basic version of the quiz. However, this version has one piece of information filled out for each of the five quotes. This could also be used for struggling students or as an incentive in the classroom. The answer key for the normal quote quiz can be used, since this version includes the same five quotes.
Quote Quiz Multiple Choice Version (.pdf and .docx) - A modified version of the quiz with the same five quotes as the original quiz, but with four multiple-choice options for each of the four parts (speaker, spoken to, meaning, and significance). This is an excellent version to be used with some students who might know the information but have difficulty putting it onto paper in writing.
Review Game Handout and Trivia Game (.pdf, .docx, and weblink) - A handout of all nine possible quotes, in random order, is provided for students to use during a trivia-style game online. The game requires an internet connection and students to each have (or share) devices. A link for the game that you can use is provided on one of the documents in this pack.
Google Docs Files (.pdf and .docx) - A link to a view-only Google Drive folder that will allow you to create copies and save any of the files listed above as Google Doc or Google Slide files.
As always, A Teacher’s Teacher aims to provide you with useful tools that will help in the classroom. To this end, all files are provided in multiple formats for both easy access (.pdf) as well as editing and modifying for your own classroom needs (.docx and .pptx).
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions, and I’d love to hear feedback about the product after purchase. Also, quote quizzes for other Shakespearean plays are available, including a mega-bundle with all of the plays for which I have quote quizzes. The mega-bundle will continue to expand as I continue to teach new plays in my Shakespeare elective. Those that purchase the bundle will receive the updated file will all quizzes added, at no further cost. Thanks for your continued support of A Teacher’s Teacher. Remember, we’re all in this together!
