This twelve page reading guide has been lovingly created to guide students through Gibson's wonderful play! This is a perfect first play for middle-school students to read and analyze. This reading guide has engaging and useful background information, necessary theatre terms, vocabulary from the play, a list of the characters, and a clear, but thoughtful page of analysis for each act. Students will summarize each act, analyze it, and evaluate the playwright's craft! After this, students are guided to write two thoughtful one-paragraph essays! I feel confident that this is just what you will need as your students through this beautiful and meaningful play.
