Day 167: End of Romeo and Juliet!

Today we finished up reading and discussing Shakespeare.

1. Writing Prompt. For 15 minutes, students responded to the following prompt:

In a paragraph, explain what message or theme the audience (or the characters) take away from seeing Romeo and Juliet.

  • Be original! (Don’t choose the theme you think everyone else will.)
  • Find a quote to support your opinion.
  • Explain how the quote supports your opinion.

2. Reader’s Theater of Act V, scene iii. We acted out (beautifully, may I add) the final scene of the play.

HW: Bring rough draft of speech tomorrow!
