We've reached one of my all time favorite units....Shakespeare!!!
I was a bit of a nerd in high school (surprised?!). I can remember sitting in my English class reading Shakespeare and being able to "translate it" like I had known this language my entire life! This is by far a result of my mom reading Shakespeare to her tummy while pregnant with me. Weird right!? Needless to say when I started taking English courses in college, I was naturally drawn to every one that was about The Bard! I am absolutely thrilled to be teaching one of his most famous Tragedies. . . Romeo & Juliet.
Now don't be scared or intimidated by all this! We will conquer it together! And to make things even more fun, we're going to be ACTING... yes ACTING out the play in class, complete with costumes and props!
To thy ownself be true = Keep it real
P.S. I will be running a weekly contest on my Twitter, complete with PRIZES!!! So if you haven't already, FOLLOW ME! Twitter.com/McCradyEnglish
