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:
- follow the line pattern and rhyme scheme of Shakespearean sonnets.
- be in iambic pentameter.
- be interesting, funny, or amusing.
- be illustrated.
- be typed.
This will be due at the start of class on Friday. Please come to class to pick up hard copies of handouts.
