Tuesday August 9, 2011 Hubbs Center - ELL 7 Agenda and Objectives
Today’s objectives... We will answer comprehension questions about Act 5. We will discuss our ideas, reactions, and questions about the play by writing our own discussion questions to talk about. We will go over final project options and have time to work on final projects.
Warm up: Act 5 Questions For our warm up today, please answer the comprehension questions about Act 5. After you finish the questions, please write at least one discussion question about any part of the play. Example: “Why do you think Romeo didn’t go to Friar Lawrence’s cell before he went to see Juliet’s body at the end of the story?” What do you think.... Why do you think.... Who do you think... Where do you think... How do you think...
Let’s Discuss! We will now get into small groups to ask and answer our discussion questions. Remember, everyone should get a chance to share their ideas and questions.
