Match the famous lines

Penned for our 'Teaching Shakespeare' series of emails, Francis Gilbert created this quiz of famous lines to get students to appreciate how much Shakespeare they know (without knowing it!) and start to see how and why Shakespeare forms part of their 'cultural capital'. A Whizzy matching version is attached.

Hi Heather,

I teach English, in Canada, at a French language High School. My students are in the applied stream (not the most advanced students), they typically need a lot of encouragement for anything that requires long term effort and engagement. Shakespeare is not high on their list of things to study. This activity is a great way to introduce them to the bard and still keep them engaged in their learning. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers! LNF
