Product Description

Designed for AP Literature, but can be used for any level.

These prompts are meant to be a low-stress way to introduce close reading and literary analysis into your study of King Lear. In my own experience, students are often overwhelmed by Shakespeare’s language and the sheer number of words on the page. This resource is meant to alleviate that sense of overwhelm.

This resource highlights one specific passage at a time and encourages students to practice noticing unusual or interesting things that they might miss in the hustle and bustle of the first reading.

You can use these as journal prompts, bellringers, or simply as close-reading check-ins.
