Hooray for Monday!

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

Today's Activity: On to Act 2! So we've met Romeo and Juliet- both of which have exhibited their tragic flaw of being impulsive. Romeo is also a bit superficial- totally into how gorgeous a girl is versus getting to know her/her personality. Juliet, seems to be a bit mature for her age yet she is quick to fall head over heels for Romeo! Let's see where this takes us shall we?

Homework: Complete the Act 2, Scenes 1 & 2 Task

Today we are having a VIRTUAL B Day!

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

Today's Activity: The Great Age Debate! Clearly, no one can determine ONE right answer to this question that perfectly satisfies all the cultures, values, and other factors that can make a marriage a happy one. This question is too subjective to ever generalize the “best” age to get married.

In Shakespeare’s England, the normal marriage age was actually close to ours – mid-twenties – but boys could legally marry at 14 years old, and girls at age 12. This is young by today’s standards, but people also died younger in the early modern era. Plus, Romeo and Juliet is actually set in Italy, where younger marriages were even more common. But what is the “ideal” or “best” age to get married now? Can teenagers experience true love that merits a marriage, or are the reasons to wait valid enough to stall?

Homework: Complete the response questions for today's readings.
