Plot summary of the play (act by act) which students create by completing an events ordering task.
The 15 bullet points / sentences which give a summary of each act, are not in the proper sequence. Students are asked to number each event in the correct order 1 - 15.
A second task asks them to rewrite the sentences to create their own summary.
Students who complete this task will have a comprehensive summary of the plot that they have created themselves. Instead of just presenting them with notes on the play, they are actively learning while creating their own.
It looks easy, but this can be quite challenging. This activity is an excellent group work activity. Students practice team work, speaking, listening, and (hopefully!) compromising skills. Writing out their answers is a task I usually assign as homework.
This is a Word document. There are 5 pages for students to complete. The 3 page solution is also included.
Download the preview file. This is the summary of Act 1. Even it you don't buy my product, this will give you a useful activity for reviewing the first act.
