I've always found video analysis super heloful - try researching on youtube to see if anyone has a good overview of the play since they usually have really good ideas/notes you can adapt. also, make sure you know your vocabulary so you can actually understand what the extract is saying. another tip is to learn language and structural features you would be able to recognise, and their effect - Shakespeare is particularly known for his iambic pentameter.

i'd also practice highlighting certain extracts! print out a few scenes and give yourself around 5 minutes to read, highlight, and pick out a bunch of features you can then analyse. I'm not sure if you have to involve context as well but it would be good to learn some to apply

hope this helps a little!
