I hope everybody enjoyed the weekend and all this crazy weather. Personally, I can’t wait for it to get warm again and actually stay warm!
Let’s take a look at what’s going to be going on throughout this week.
Monday and Tuesday we’re going to be finishing up with Act Two of Romeo and Juliet. We have three more big scenes to get through and some more questions to answer. We’ll get to see if Romeo and Juliet actually decide to go through with their wedding and what consequences that decision is going to have.
As of right now, your TEST over Romeo and Juliet Act Two is going to be on Wednesday. It’s going to follow the same format as the test before, with multiple choice and a short answer portion. If you want/need to refresh your memory over Romeo and Juliet once you leave class, don’t forget to go to the “Useful and Important Links” page. There you’ll find the full text for Romeo and Juliet as well as the No Fear Shakespeare version.
Thursday we’ll continue on with Act Three, Scene One. We’re going to see Romeo and Juliet finally start to live up to its original name: The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Who will live and who will die? We’ll find out.
Also don’t forget that your Romeo and Juliet in Pop Culture posts are due on Thursday. Go to the page labeled “Pop Culture” and leave your comments. Do not forget to do this! This is a grade and can either help or hurt you. I am interested in reading everyone’s pop culture finds!
Friday you guys are going to be the teachers. Mr. Woodall and I are going to let you lead us through the rest of Act Three and you get to ask the questions and lead the discussions.
It’s going to be another fun and exciting week and I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow!
