This assignment/activity was originally used as a review for a final TAMING OF THE SHREW test, but it may be used as just one of the assignments in a unit (Shakespeare/TAMING OF THE SHREW). Students must have read the play (or seen the film) prior to being given this assignment. This assignment is suitable for ELD 4 and 5 students.
There are 30 fill in the blanks in 25 statements that test the students' understanding of the characters and plot of TAMING OF THE SHREW. Students must fill the blanks with the appropriate answer (choices NOT given). The answers are the words that must be found in the wordsearch. (I awarded 95% of the assignment's point value for completion of the fill-in, and 5% for completing the wordsearch portion as it is possible to find words without finding answers).
Students were given the majority of the class period to complete the activity and we went over the answers together in the last 10-15 minutes of class, although you can also complete the activity as a class. The active "teaching duration" is limited if it will just be student classwork, however it may be a full period of active teaching time should the activity be done as a class.
The download includes 3 pages, the final page being the ANSWER KEY to the fill-in the blank.
