ROMEO AND JULIET ACT 1 ACTIVITY BUNDLE
This is a very comprehensive bundle for Act I of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. I have broken Act I into four parts each, with its own activity. I think you and your students will enjoy this packet which contains.
1) Matching the Prologue to Modern Language: (Demystifying Shakespearean Language)
This Prologue decoding activity is a great introduction not only to Shakespearean Language, but also to the conflict and the setting of the story. It provides an opportunity for students to make an early connection with the text and language used. I use second language learning strategies to introduce the prologue. Students listen to their teacher read the prologue. Then they do an activity which utilizes information gapping, matching, and sequencing strategies. I have included this activity as a free product and also in the preview.
2) Comprehension Questions and Quotes activity for Scene 1
3) Comprehension Questions and Quotes activity for Scenes 2-3
a) Students answer questions and analyze the significance of important quotes from each of these scenes in the play. Answer keys are included.
4) Answering Questions with a Quote activity for scenes 4+ 5.
A new activity which challenges students to not only answers the question, but to also prove their answers with at least one quote or dialogue from the characters in the play. My students found this challenging, but very interesting! Answer sheets are also included.
5)Act 1 Important Quotes Quiz and Worksheet.
This is a bonus worksheet where the most important quotes are presented in sequence. It can be used act as assessment or a springboard for discussion and summarizing Act I.
Again, I think that your students will enjoy these comprehensive and interesting activities.
