Go to Google Classroom to see video of our Zoom meeting
I want everyone to join my Google Calendar- I’m hoping it will be an easy visual for you to see when things are due. You can also turn on alerts-
1st period calendar
3rd period calendar
7th period calendar
So here we are- in uncharted waters- I’m excited!!!! But I miss you already…seriously.
I am going to use this post to add all assignments…you will need to scroll down to find the day you need to work on. I will have a week’s worth of work; however, it will be broken down by day. You can complete the week’s worth if you like, just pay attention to due days because some assignments could “close” or “shut down” and not let you in after the date due.
Join my Google Classroom by class period. Go to classroom.google.com
Assignments won’t be on the Google Classroom until tomorrow- so see assignments on the blog- below.
To join your class, put in this code:
1st period- m7npmuy
3rd period- umqzfzz
7th period- m6i5xl4
Join ASAP I will put assignments both on the blog and in the Google Classroom. I think you will find it will help keep us both organized.
I will be available from 10-12. There are a few ways you can reach me for questions:
- You can message me in the Google Classroom space.
- text me on the remind app if you have joined. If you haven’t – here is how you can -Text @bdh77g to 81010 After you recieve the first “shout out” then you can text me back on it.
- email my school email – email@example.com or christinawatson1970@gmail (this is the email you will share any assignments with)
- I am working on a way we can talk face to face- I’ll share later.
If there is an assignment- you can share it digitally in Google classroom or take a picture of it and send it to Google Classroom.
***if you need to join something or download and answer something, I will put these asterisks and say “action needed”.
You may be asked to join a few things – like quizziz- I have links for your to click on to enroll if you scroll down after Monday’s assignment. I will have a quiz over Romeo and Juliet Acts 1, 2 and 3. Don’t panic if you don’t do well- quizzes are suppose to be for the teacher to see where her class is- not punish and reward. I won’t be taking the grade (perhaps participation grade)…so there is no need to cheat. (:
You will still be doing the Romeo and Juliet mosaic, but I made some changes so that you could easily do it digitally copying and pasting images that expresses your analogy. That project will lead us to a literary analysis paper (don’t worry, it’s a short one). My goal is to put in your grades on the research papers, and if I find a writing goal for you within the other paper, I want to see improvement in this paper.
Other than the above projects, I want you to answer the questions on the Romeo and Juliet packet- you can print out packet (scroll and find below) or download and type. You will turn this in eventually. You can answer Acts 3-5 only. I know Acts 1-2 are locked away at school. (:
I am going to start with Thursday 3/12 for any who missed the last two days of last week.
Thursday, 3/12– We will be reading and watching Act 2; scene 4-5 and answering questions in packet-

I am exempting the quiz from Friday. I will assign a project for the book you chose. Details later- But finish the book within these next two weeks. You have time!!
Romeo and Juliet Project – due April 1st Mosaic- you will use this to brainstorm your paper
I’m going to tweak the “mosaic project” for Romeo and Juliet a bit-
Below is the link to the new instructions. I will make a screen cast explaining it more or answering questions next week.
***take action by opening the new instructions and save them for later
R & J Mosaic digital version
Below is a lame one I just threw together. I am also thinking your analogy can be backed up by two quotes and two memes that support it.
you will need an analogy: ________________ is to ________________ like __________________ is to ____________________. You will also need at least 2 quotes – here’s a good link to some quotes- you can copy and paste- just make sure it supports your analogy.
If you see the assignment on Google Classroom, you will see that I revised the project to include ANY artistic expression of a relationship between two characters in the play.
You can paint, draw, make a collage.
You could have two “Dear Diary entries” or an exchange of text messages that includes quotes & gives us enough dialogue to show the true nature of the relationship.
You can video a scene analyzing a relationship- see the “therapy skit” below
You can make a visual using Power Point or word…bottom line- anything goes as long as you analyze two character’s relationship & include at least two quotes.
Shakespeare Tavern is rescheduling their performance.
We are going to move forward with Romeo and Juliet. I am going to link you to the No Fear Shakespeare for the scenes- as well as link you to some videos that either summarize or perform the scence.
Below is the link to the audio for all of Act 3, 4 &5

Below is the link to the 1968 version of this scene. It is in two parts, so make sure you watch the video that follows it.

Read your parallel- look at the project for it- on Google Classroom- due Friday, April 3rd
Also- You need to create your analogy that you will be creating your mosaic around. I will have a screencast to explain it in detail.
In the past, kids have created video (reenactments or parodies) or Romeo and Juliet. Here is a compilation of favorites I have found online- a good way to be pondering which relationship you want to explore in your mosaic and enventually, paper:
Monday, March 30 Watching movie of choice below and answering questions due March 31st by midnight
I found three free movies (not the best quality, so if you can find the same movie elsewhere or your parents wanna rent and watch with you- do it for quality sake). There are separate questions for each movie- you only have to do ONE!
If you want to watch a traditional version (some updates), watch the 2013 version staring Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfeld.
If you love theater and musicals, watch Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story- a modern adaption of Romeo and Juliet in New York City- lots of music and dancing!
If you love parodies and cartoons, watch Gnomeo and Juliet! See how many references to other Shakespearean plays you can see hidden in there!
Romeo & Juliet 2013 link to movie on YouTube
question sheet on Google Classroom
West Side Story – pretty decent version

Gnomeo and Juliet on YouTube- pretty rough version but you can do it if you have to…
