This digital download includes 6 Merchant of Venice 10-question quizzes: one for each Act and one for an introduction. I have also included discussion or group questions in a Google Doc about the introduction. The quizzes were revised recently to be a bit more ACT-like, but the quizzes are mostly to assess comprehension rather than reading skills.
I have also included Quizstar import codes, but those quizzes (as of the introduction of this download) not yet updated to the 10-question versions in the document. That will be changed, and you are welcome to edit the Quizstar versions once you copy them.
I also include my fairly simple instructions on how I taught Merchant successfully to Regular (not advanced) English 9 and 10 classes without alternate texts. Years later, students still mention the play because they still get it. If this material took me about 8 hours to put together, think about the time you can spend creating other lessons. If you've never taught Merchant of Venice before or if you're an old pro who wants a better introduction, this is the download for you. You won't be afraid to tackle Shakespeare with the right resources, and your students will benefit from your advanced planning.
