  • Product Description
  • StandardsNEW

This close reading assessment features 7 text-dependent, high-order questions to promote improved reading comprehension and analysis of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night (Act 4, Scene 3). An answer key with detailed rationale for each correct option is included, as are Word Document, Google Document, and PDF versions of the assessment.

By engaging in this exercise, students will:

  • Analyze details to investigate character motivations and modes of thinking
  • Analyze a character's remarks to discern tone in context
  • Analyze an excerpt to discern and articulate its primary function
  • Define complex vocabulary in context, taking into consideration denotative definitions and connotative associations
  • Apply knowledge of literary devices (situational irony and dramatic irony) to the text, articulating how they are present in the passage
  • Write ideas with clarity and precision

This resource aligns well to Academic Literacy Project teaching principles. This worksheet serves well as the basis for small-group discussions. Through these discussions, students decode Shakespeare's language and pose/respond to questions relating to plot, broad topics, and character development, demonstrating an ability to analyze how complex characters transform and advance the plot and themes by applying logic and citing compelling, meaningful textual evidence. They will also evaluate their peers' reasoning and use of rhetoric to advance claims, clarifying or challenging unclear ideas. Using this resource for structured guidance, students, ultimately, will present information, conclusions, and supporting textual evidence clearly, concisely, and appropriately, thereby helping their peers -- and teacher -- comprehend their thinking.

In addition to helping students gain deeper understanding of the material and greater confidence in their ability to read and comprehend complex texts, this resource helps prepare students for ACT reading question types. Specifically, this close reading exercise includes inference questions, word meaning questions, main idea questions, "except" questions, and context questions.
