We continued watching Romeo and Juliet in class today. We discussed an AP-style set of questions about a passage from the play, as well as a handout on sonnets with a homework assignment:

Please write your own Shakespearean sonnet. It must:

  1. follow the line pattern and rhyme scheme of Shakespearean sonnets.
  2. be in iambic pentameter.
  3. be interesting, funny, or amusing.
  4. be illustrated.
  5. be typed.

This will be due at the start of class on Friday. Please come to class to pick up hard copies of handouts.
