Romeo and Juliet - Freshmen

ROMEO AND JULIET BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE



Freshmen will be reading Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in class.  Homework will be either the questions or articles pertaining to the Play.
Prezi about the English Renaissance

In case the students leave their books at school, they can read the No Fear Shakespeare Online to help them answer the questions.  Their modern language is a little different from the modern language of the book, but it will help them.

No Fear Shakespeare

We will be watching the older version and the newer version movies of the play as we read.
I do not have a link for these, but you can probably find them on NetFlix. These are the trailers. Be aware that the older version does have a scene that I will not show because I feel it is inappropriate for school.  I will fast forward through that scene.  Newest is PG13 and the older is probably PG13 but was released in 1968.
