Romeo and Juliet Acts I and II

We are taking a different approach with Romeo and Juliet. There is an emphasis on literary terms and finding examples of those terms in the text. You will be reading several literary analysis essays reflecting different aspects of the novel, written by scholars and giving you a flavor of what you will be able to add to your future discourses.
Act I is due Wednesday (you are responsible for seven of the ten quotes)
Act II is due Friday: You will have vocab and quotes, plus a reflection essay on the balcony scene that you need to read and highlight for Friday's discussion.
Thursday, you will be doing an in-class reading on Mercutio's character.
Root List #7 is also now available. That test is scheduled in the planner.
Please check out the planner for a look at the rest of the school year!
