Need complete, all-purpose quizzes on Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare?
These two-part quizzes are assessments that will work no matter how you have presented the play to your classes.
For the first part, students choose 10 out of 15 quotes to identify the speaker. The names of all the speakers are provided, but the order has been mixed up. The quotes themselves go in chronological order. I have found that this is a simple, objective way to measure how well students know the play.
For the second part, students choose three of those quotes to write a short essay about a theme of their choice based on one of the essay questions. For these paragraph-length essays, what matters is that students have a thesis statement which they back up with examples from the play. I have included one sample answer so you get an idea of what an A essay might look like, but students’ work will vary greatly here.
When you assess your students on Romeo and Juliet with these exam questions you will:
• have ready-to-go exam questions that require zero prep on your part
• ease your students’ testing anxiety by starting them off with simple and straightforward quote identifications
• challenge your students to think for themselves and analyze the text by getting them to write original essays based on the provided quotes
• quickly and easily grade students’ work using the provided answer key and rubric
Get your students reading the text, writing about themes, and deepening their understanding of the play with these proven resources.
