While I was away, students worked on some introduction to Romeo and Juliet and had a full work period for the ISU.
Yesterday and today we continued with our Romeo and Juliet introduction.
Yesterday we did silent reading, recapped Shakespeare's history and time period and spent the rest of class translating the prologue into modern English.
Today, books and roles were assigned. We talked about key figures in the play, how to read a play and what makes a play different from a novel and key criteria for good oral reading.
We begin with Act 1, Scene 1 tomorrow.
Students are asked to bring a PRINTED copy of their redone essay paragraph on FRIDAY for a peer activity.
