This file has two worksheets, which analyze the Motifs and Themes found in Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The theme topic is provided, then students are prompted to explore and analyze this topic in order to create a theme statement. The motif is also provided and students are prompted to do additional exploration to support/analyze this motif.
Extension--often I will assign ONE motif or theme per group and ask students to focus all their energy on one topic. The students are then required to share this information with the class. This serves as a great jigsaw activity!
