Activity Overview


After students finish reading, it's helpful for them to summarize the story both as a way to assess comprehension but also to help them remember important plot points for later projects or papers. Students can create a storyboard that breaks A Midsummer Night's Dream down using the Five Act Structure like the example above. Because Shakespeare's plays include prologues, the first of the six cells can be used for the prologue or exposition and the second will be used to set up the conflict.

For each cell, have students describe what happens in the act and create a scene that follows the acts in order: Prologue, Conflict, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, and Denouement. Scaffold the project if desired (for example, by providing partially completed cells or descriptions).
