Before you continue reading, discuss the play so far as a class. Be sure to bring up any questions or points of confusion that you still have and see whether you can help clarify things for your classmates.
Here are some questions to get you started.
- What changes do Don Pedro and Claudio say that they see in Benedick? What reasons for them do they, and Benedick, give?
- What does Don John promise Claudio that he will see that evening outside Hero’s window?
- What does Claudio say he will do if Don John is right?
- What do you think will happen next?
