Read aloud: Act 3, Scene 5• Before we begin reading, let’s discuss what happened in Scene 4 and the beginning of Scene 5.• Choose students to read the following parts: – Stage directions – Lady Capulet – Juliet – Lord Capulet – Nurse
Stop and Discuss - Act 3• Before we work in groups to summarize the main events of Act 3, let’s brainstorm a list of important themes or events from Act 3.• I will write them on the board to help you when your group begins writing your summary of Act 3.• Remember, your summary should include: – main characters – main events – important details – setting
“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 the lines they spoke.• You will get a card with either a character’s name or a line of dialogue from Act 3.• 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”.
Writing Comprehension Questions• Now, we will work with the same partner to write a comprehension question about Act 3.• Look back in the script at Act 3.• Choose an important event or detail from Act 3 and write a question asking about it.Example: “Which characters die right after Romeo and Juliet get married? How do they die?”• After you write your question, trade with another group. Discuss the question with your partner, and share your answer with the other group. They will share their answer with you, too.
Act 3 - Comprehension Question Handout• If we have time in class, you can answer the Act 3 Comprehension Question handout alone or with a partner.• Please write down the page number where you found the answer to each question.• We will discuss our answers in class, if we have time.• If we run out of time, please do the handout as homework and bring it back tomorrow.
