This product is a close read of act 2, scene 2 of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, also referred to as the balcony scene.
This close read includes 22 multiple choice questions, an answer sheet, and an answer key. The text used for this close read is the one from Holt’s Elements of Literature, Third Course. A text with the same line numbering will also work. There are many out there. The text of the balcony scene is not included as part of this product.
The multiple choice questions that accompany this close read focus on several concepts beyond plot comprehension, including imagery, metaphor, simile, personification, characterization, tone, author's purpose, and form (line numbering).
Use this product as a guided close read, or use it as an assessment.
I usually give students at least two reads (audio and partnered) before presenting them with these guided questions. It takes me about 3 or four days with short writing assignments and discussions built in.
