Scribe for May 2nd
Sorry this is a little late but here is what we did on Friday. We began class once again by being so loud that we can’t even hear the announcements. Mrs. Moritz told us that we needed to be quite so that we could hear the pledge and the announcements. Then the winners of the mask contest were awarded candy from Mrs. Moritz. The three categories were best representation of character, best disguise, and most creative. The winners were Lisa for best representation of character, Matt and Matt for best disguise, and Joe for most creative. After the mask contest winners got their candy we made a stage and began reading the famous balcony scene. “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo” does not mean Romeo where are you but it means why do you have to be a Montague. This line is very famous but some people don’t really know what it means. After we finished reading the scene we watched the Zaferelli version and Romeo kind of looked like Zack Efron. After the scene from the movie was over we discussed why Romeo and Juliet were acting the way they were acting. They were just acting like two teenagers in “love”. We didn’t quite get through all of Act II so the homework is to finish Act II for Monday. Also work on grammar packet, get to page 278.
