Romeo and Juliet: 20 key extracts to revise for GCSE 9-1 (with answers)

I have carefully selected 20 brief key extracts from the play. They are the 20 extracts I consider to be most likely to come up in the exam.

To complete the revision activity, students must work out what is happening in each extract, analyse two key quotations and make links to context, themes and ideas.

This booklet is helping my students revise for the closed book examination. There are 4 A3 sheets covering Acts 1-5.

Of the hundreds Romeo and Juliet resources I have created, this is probably the most effective.

Also includes a PowerPoint with suggested answers for each extract.

Includes an AQA version (with context) and an Eduqas version (without context).
