Homework (if any) from previous day: Figurative language worksheet due today
Content Objectives for the Lesson:
Students will be able to compile a portfolio of their lessons, homework, and writing
throughout the reading of the play.
Students will be able to breakdown passages and translate the meaning of the words
Shakespeare uses in the play.
Learning Objectives for the Lesson:
Students will be able to identify figures of speech in modern day song lyrics to help them
identify figures of speech in Shakespeare easier.
Students will be able to compose a summary of the scenes we read in class.
Students will be able to explain where we are in the play using the graph/timeline.
Language Objectives for the Lesson:
Students will be able to compose a short essay based on a persuasive writing prompt.
Students will be able to revise and rewrite their essay prompt during the next class period.
Starter: Persuasive writing
1) Students will continue to write on their prompt from last class: Many people question
how true Romeos love for Juliet really is because of his infatuation with Rosaline at
the start of the play. Do you think Romeo truly loves Juliet? Why or why not? Use
examples from the play to support your answer.
Students will find evidence in the textbook to support their answer.
Students will type up this prompt on March 17th on utahcompose.com
Students will have 20 minutes to revise and finish their writing.
Class Procedures/Class Work: We will start with a brief review of what we did last time
in class. Students will get their portfolios from the files.

1) We will review the figures of speech we discussed during the last class.
Students will get out a piece of paper..
I will show students a 5 slide PPP of figures of speech from modern day song
lyrics. Students will write down what they think each one is. We will discuss as a
class the correct matches.
2) Today we will read Act III Scene 1-2. We will watch Scene 3 in the movie and fill in
the scene summary on Thursday.
We will be stopping during the reading of the play to fill in the comprehension
We will fill in the timeline/graph after finishing the reading.
-I will ask for two volunteers to fill in number 4 Climax/Crisis points on the
enlarged graph on the Smart Board.
3) We will watch the scenes in Romeo+Juliet that we have just read in the book.
Plans for Assessment: Comprehension questions and timeline as well as summaries.
Homework: none
Plans for Enrichment: Students can work on missing work or writing prompts.
Plans for Remediation: Students can ask classmates for peer help on the comprehension
questions or assignments to make up. Students can also work with me during individual
work time.
Plans for ELLs: Power point and the visual for the structure of the play. We will be
using an audiobook of the play while reading for audial learners. We will also be
watching the Franco Zeferelli or the Baz Luhrmann movie after each act of the play,
switching between the two to give students different versions.
Reflection: On the starter activity, I didnt have students take out a piece of paper. We did
it more informally through looking at the slides together as a class. I want to figure out a
fun activity for figurative language review for our next class period. This could be a
jeopardy game or another game. I also didnt get to do the figurative language activity
with the first period due to 15 minutes missing for TV West and morning announcements.
Today was so fun! We got to read the fight scene, which is more interesting for students
to read. We watched the scene in the newer movie and all of the students were paying
attention and glued to the screen. Score!
