Entry Task: Please take out your Big Idea Book
Before we start, take a moment to remember what we have read and saw so far, and be on the look out for evidence of your chosen big idea.
Today we will finish watching the film version of Romeo & Juliet!
Remember, the film version we are watching uses Shakespeare's original language but takes place in a more modern time, so pay attention to the events of the play even if you are not understanding everything they are saying.
Read the final scene to discuss differences between the ending of the play and the ending of the film. Be on the look out for a Big Idea quote!

Exit Task: In the bottom box of the comparison chart, explain whether your preferred the original, the No Fear Shakespeare, or the movie version of the play and why you prefer this style.
