Today, we will wrap up our Double Entry Journal common assessments on Of Mice and Men. Our next unit will be on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This will be an exciting text to explore, since we will be practicing our acting skills in English class for the first time. We may discover that we have the next Leonardo DiCaprio sitting right here in our classroom!
Since it is our last class period before break, we are not quite ready to dive into Romeo and Juliet just yet. Instead, today we will take a pre-test to determine how much our class knows about William Shakespeare. Click here to take your Shakespeare Pre-Test! We will revisit this test later on, after we have learned all about Shakespeare, to make note of our progress. By the end of the year, we will all be little Shakespeare scholars!
