Romeo and Juliet

The 8th graders will being reading Romeo and Julie next week.  The purpose of exposing students to this classic piece of literature is to provide students with a foundation of background knowledge from which they can use when they are in high school.  We will read the work primarily in an adapted text to help students gain access to the story.   However, we will present some of the work in its original Elizabethan language to allow students to gain an appreciation for iambic pentameter, the format and style Shakespeare used.
Please stay tuned for more information and updates!
