This 3-page document is an excellent activity for class discussion and lessons, pre/post-testing, unit tests, and final assessments/tests. The document gives students Friar's speech from Act 2, Scene 3 of Romeo and Juliet, and follows with 6 text-based questions (similar to the NYS Regents Exam). The questions ask students to focus in on specific word choice and vocabulary as a way to narrow down a main idea for Friar's soliloquy.
Lines 15-18, most nearly suggest that…
a. Things from the Earth can both be dangerous and helpful
b. Things from Earth can only be dangerous and offer no help
c. People can give good things to the Earth
d. Friar Laurence has evil thoughts towards Mother Nature
Document also includes an answer key, and is easy to use for data collection and common assessments among teachers. Enjoy!
