PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Word document is a scene by scene summary of the plot of The Merchant of Vencie in "Fill in the blanks" format. This is an active learning activity designed to be both fun and supportive of learning. My students love completing this task, and they get a real sense of achievement from it.

You could use this at the end of each scene or act to assist students in creating their own notes (plot summary). This provides scaffolding for weaker students who find the process of writing their own summary daunting. I use this for revision when we have completed our study of the play. It's a handy way to recall the key action of the play.

There is a word bank at the end of each scene to help students. You could redact this to make it more difficult.

The activity consists of 11 pages. The 7 page solution is also included, so 18 pages in total.

Download the preview file to get the cloze test for the first two scenes. Even if you don't buy my product, this will give you a useful exercise with which to get students started on Act One.
