“For never was a story of more woe;

Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”


Truly one of the most significant works of literature ever written in any language, “Romeo and Juliet” is one of Shakespeare’s most influential and enduring plays. So, we’ll be diving into it full force. Shakespeare's command of the English language is part prose, part poetry, part music and part word-play. So, have fun with it. You'll be better for the experience. I promise.


Everything you'll need for our “Romeo & Juliet” unit is on Canvas or has been handed out in class. If you have any questions, make sure you talk to Mr. DeMiero in class, PASS or at lunch.


Here are some great resources to help you dig deep into this wonderful play. By the way, if you find any that you think are helpful please post the link in the comments section below. Several of these links have come from student suggestions.
