Lit - Merchant of Venice Intro, Questions, and Quiz

I used this introduction to The Merchant of Venice for about 10 years teaching both English 10 and English 9. If you have a chance to teach Merchant instead of Romeo and Juliet or Midsummer Night's Dream, jump at it. Most of the other teachers in my department preferred the other options, but Merchant fit so well into the themes I'd established with other stories, partially because there are so many themes addressed, and so many famous scenes. Actually, the way I was able to teach this story is one of the elements I will miss most about no longer teaching, so please contact me if you have any questions about what to use or if you want a guest authority on the play.
