How to Use this Resource
This essay prompt and accompanying rubric are very open in topic but specific in requirements related to the standards. A short "Introduction to Quoting Shakespeare in MLA" section is included.

I have used this resource in my classrooms from 7th to 12th grades. It is easily adaptable to different plays and helps students understand how to cite direct quotations in an essay in order to build their argument.

I recommend using this mini lesson after your class finishes the second act and before you start the third. This way, students can look for quotes as they progress through the play. I would also allow students the freedom to refine their thesis statement as the play goes on, as so much changes within the last 3 acts.
