Students have difficulty understanding how patterned motifs become themes.This assignment breaks down important quotes in all five acts that reveal these patterns. This 34 page document includes a DETAILED answer key. Each act builds off the previous and students begin to see the purpose behind Shakespeare''s connections. I use this activity with my college prep seniors after each act. The students work in pairs or groups to examine the quotes and how they connect to each other. Then I use this as a springboard to create thematic statements. Students can use this resource as a study guide for the essay test on theme.
