Description
This could also be categorized as pre-reading. I devised a "Shaw and Pygmalion Library Scavenger Hunt" for students to use before reading Pygmalion, to provide chronology,context and cultural literacy to enhance their reading of the play. Students used print and non-print resources to answer the questions. (Email me for a sample copy.)
Rank Strategy
Very Useful and Effective
Reflection
Some students had to finish outside of class. This activity served two purposes as a pre-reading actvity and a one-day lesson on research. I may tweak some of the questions next year, but I'll use it again.
