Your Favorite Passage

Work Time

Now that you’ve read two acts in total, you’re ready to begin some close analysis of smaller passages.

  • First, look through the play and your Much Ado About Nothing Dialectical Journal entries to find one of your favorite brief passages from act 1 or 2. It doesn’t have to be any longer than two or three lines.
  • This passage can be one that has beautiful language, is deep with multiple meanings, contains a universal truth, or is a great example of humor.
  • This activity can help you begin to think about what passage you’d like to perform.
  • Your teacher will give you a note card. Put your name on the top of the card. Write your passage on the card. Make sure to identify the passage with act, scene, and line numbers.
