Product Description
This zip file contains two Word documents. The first document is the comprehensive and Common Core aligned reading guide, covering all five acts of Romeo & Juliet by Shakespeare. The second document is the corresponding answer key.

The comprehensive reading guide includes the following:

- 98 total questions, broken up by act and scene. Questions could easily be transferred to an exam, or modified to accommodate your course's focus. The key offers detailed, but concise information -- and could easily double as lecture notes or an exam guide.

- 37 relevant quotes, broken up by act and scene. The key identifies the speaker and the context of each quote -- and, again, could easily double as lecture notes or an exam guide.

Click the 'preview' icon below the thumbnail to see the general format, as well as a sampling of questions, answers, and quotes. My belief is that you will find these documents easily adaptable should the needs of your class vary.
