This resource was created to be used with Shakespeare’s drama, “Romeo and Juliet", Act I through Act V. The Reading Guide provides the students with a close read of the text with dependent questions that help target the Common core State Standards for Literature. This guide helps students with comprehension to help determine what the author is saying? The student reading guide is ready to duplicate for classroom use and teacher key for the test is included. Another resource is available for “Romeo and Juliet” on my site: Narrative Writing Prompt for students to create a different ending to Romeo and Juliet. Tests and all other reading activities have been aligned to Common Core State Standards.
