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!
