     Jennifer,
     One solution I arrived at with students reading Shakespeare and other complex
     works was to ask them to create their *own* Cliffs Notes. (Interestingly,
    the
     first year I did this, a handful of students actually tried to plagiarize
    Cliffs
     Notes to complete this assignment, but just a handful.) I invented my own
    form
     and provided a lot of support along the way, but for the most part, students
     really got into creating their own custom-made study guide which they could
    then
     use in future, more involved assignments. They did one guide per act, and
    many of
     their responses then became springboards for our class discussion of the
    work.
     
     In case anyone wants to take a look, I've attached a version I created when
    we
     read _The Crucible_ along with a sample I wrote myself for Act I.

    Cindy, the attachment was garbled. Can you send it again? Nancy R. K.
