1. Today we prepared to read Romeo and Juliet by filling out this character chart, which has a study guide on the back that students need to complete as they read: Romeo and Juliet Reading Guide and Timeline (front and back).

2. Then, students learned a little about the history of Elizabethan England:

3. Finally, we annotated the Prologue on this half sheet, L22: Guided Notes Background

4. Lastly, we began reading Act I, scene i of the play! It’s hilarious. We discussed why a play about love would start out with such violence and  how Shakespeare used humor to get the audience engaged.

HW: Get your own copy of Romeo and Juliet or be prepared to read it online here or have a textbook issued to you.
