Character Development

Act 3, Scene 1 Introduction

Work Time

Read along with your teacher as he or she introduces the next scene. This scene mirrors a previous one in which Benedick is conned into believing that Beatrice is in love with him.

As you listen, here are a few things to think about.

  • How realistic are these two scenes?
  • Is it realistic to think that people change their minds about others when they hear that they are liked and appreciated by them?
  • Can you remember a situation similar to this in your own life or the life of one of your friends?
