Hey there MONDAY!!

Be sure to join us on Google Meet during our designated class period.

Today's Activity: 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. We have a few presentations of information to get through so...when taking notes, please do not write things verbatim (word for word). Look for keywords and phrases!

Today we are having a VIRTUAL B Day!

Be sure to join us on Google Meet during our designated class period.

Today's Activity: It's time to BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE...Or at least let's get comfortable with his language! Yes, Shakespeare wrote rather uniquely. Don't be intimidated, we will get through it together. BUT before we do that, let's break down the parts of a Shakespearean play. Remember, when taking notes, please do not write things verbatim (word for word). Look for keywords and phrases!
