This is a summary of the plot (act by act) which students create by completing a sequencing task.
The 10 sentences which give a summary of each act, are not presented in the proper sequence. Students are asked to number each sentence in the right order 1 - 10.
A second task asks them to rewrite the sentences to create their own summary.
Students who complete this task will have a comprehensive summary of the plot that they have created themselves. Instead of just presenting them with notes on the play, they are actively learning while creating their own.
It looks easy, but this can be quite challenging. It works well for team or pair work. If you want to get your students working on listening and negotiation skills, it's wonderful (and can be quite fun to watch).
This is a Word document. There are 5 pages for students to complete. The 2 page solution is also included.
Download the preview file. This is the summary of Act 1. Even it you don't buy my product, this will be a useful worksheet for students on completion of the first act.
