Quote Quiz Preparation Packet (.pdf and .docx) - A list of 9 important quotes from the first three acts of the play. Students are asked to provide the speaker of the quote, to whom the lines were spoken, the basic meaning of the lines, and the greater significance of those lines to the play as a whole. Due dates and the date of the quiz are left as blanks on the .pdf version so you can fill them in, or you can edit and type them in for the .docx file.
Quote Quiz Preparation Answer Key (.pdf and .docx) - The complete information for all 9 quotes from the Quote Quiz Preparation Packet, including the speaker of the quote, to whom the lines were spoken, the basic meaning of the lines, and the greater significance of those lines to the play as a whole. You can use these same answers for when you grade the quizzes themselves.
