Warm up: Romeo and Juliet...in Miami?• For our warm up activity, please read the article “Missing ‘Romeo and Juliet’ Teens Return Home”.• While you are reading, think about how this modern story is similar to and different from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.• Fill out the Compare-Contrast sheet on the back of the article when you finish reading.• We will discuss your comparisons of the two articles and any questions you might have at 9:30 or so.

“Who Said What?”• We will complete a Character Study handout to help us remember who did and said what in Act 3.• Then, we will do a matching activity between the names of characters from Act 3 and Act 4 and the lines they spoke.• You will get a card with either a character’s name or a line of dialogue from Act 3 and Act 4.• When I say go, mingle around the room to try to find the person whose card matches yours.• When you find your partner, sit down together and write down why you think the quote on your card is important.• Example: If my card says, “There is no world outside Verona. Everything I love is here”, I should look for someone with a card that says “Romeo”.

Understanding Inferences• What is a prediction? – A guess that might be right or wrong. We find out the correct answer.• What is an inference? – Logical ideas or an argument for something using evidence and background knowledge. There are no right or wrong answers, and it’s not a guess. http://conclusionsinferencing.blogspot.com/
How to make an inference:• Ask yourself: – “What do I already know about this topic?” – “What would I see, hear, smell, feel, taste with this topic?” – “What else is happening in this situation that can help me understand more than what these words/this picture shows me?”• Use clues from the words or pictures + your own experiences = a logical conclusion or idea.
