Reflection: Quizzes Shakespeare in Love: What Does the Director Want Us to Think About the Bard? - Section 2: Quiz: Show Your Shakespeare Knowledge


I've written before about my reservations about quizzes and their effectiveness. Practically speaking, they are necessary, but I'm not always sure they that encourage actual learning and growth. However, I think that this quiz was effective. The lowest grade was a 90, which I think is amazing. Some teachers might argue that all the exceptionally high scores suggests that the quiz was too easy, but I don't agree. I think that the format rewards knowledge. They were engaged enough during the presentation to learn about Shakespeare and London, they studied their notes, and they were successful.
