Romeo and Juliet: Webquest and the Prologue

After SSR, we worked to finish the webquests that we started at the end of last class. For the webquest, you were all assigned a topic related to Shakespeare's life and the culture in which he lived. We resumed this introductory activity today so that you will be able to share your findings before we being reading Romeo and Juliet later this week.

Rather than just reading the Prologue, you all received a mismatched group of lines that you worked to put in the right order. this competition did not last long; two of you put the fourteen lines of this poem in the correct order in less than four minutes. Good work!

We'll complete this activity and enjoy Poetry Friday next class. Here is our group definition of the word "prologue":
