November 8 Class Update–Benvolio and Romeo, “Queen Mab,” and Laughing at What the Nurse Says

Benvolio and Romeo. It was very nice to see the masks that the students have created. They look fabulous!

Today in class we began with the theme of obedience to parents. Which is a very important element to the play. Our verse was, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” Ephesians 6:1

And our journal topic was to write for 5-10 minutes about a time when they had to make a choice to be obedient or to go behind their parents back. What was the circumstance? Did they obey or disobey? How do they feel about it now?

We were able to see Juliet’s statement of obedience to her parent in regards to marriage and love when she says, “I will look to like, if looking liking move. But no more deep will I endart mine eye than your consent gives strength to make it fly” (Act I, Scene 3).

It is much easier to be an obedient child, in the moments that you are NOT tempted, right? In a couple hours Juliet will forget what she told her mom!

I passed back the graded research reports. Overall the students did an excellent job.

I did give them the opportunity to turn them in again with correct formatting, but that is optional.

This is my favorite nurse. She is like a family member that you love, but don’t want to be seen with in public!

Then I explained the homework, which is a Venn diagram comparing and contrasting the characteristics of the Nurse with Lady Capulet.

As we read, the Nurse said some things that made us laugh a bit. Which was intended : )

And we are all set up for Romeo to see Juliet next Friday in class.

I can’t wait : )

God Bless!!!
