This editable 13-question close reading and annotating resource helps students derive deeper meaning from William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. This exercise covers the introductory soliloquies in Act 2, Scene 2. By engaging in this exercise, students will make their engagement with text more visible, read to identify what the text says explicitly and implicitly, apply literary devices, and interpret figurative expressions. An answer key with sample annotations is included. More specifically, this resource covers the following:
This resource aligns well to Adolescent Literacy Project teaching principles. I recommend using these worksheets as the basis for small-group discussions, letting students discuss, debate, and support their reasoning for answer choices.

In addition to helping students gain deeper understanding of the material and greater confidence in their ability to read complex texts, this resource was designed to prepare students for ACT-style questioning.
