Welcome to June...

Unit 4 is all about Shakespeare.  We are studying his language and society.  To help us get up close and personal with Mr. William, we are analyzing "The Taming of the Shrew", one of his comedies.  Students will be memorizing a monologue and doing scene work with classmates.  Drama can be a risk for students (or adults).  We spend a lot of time keeping fellow actors safe and making sure we are always telling a story on stage. 

Academic Vocabulary:  collaborate, source, multimedia, bibliography, evaluate, synthesize, annotate.

Literary Terms:  rhythm, iambic pentameter, iamb, tableau, limerick, rhyme scheme, oral interpretation, inflection, rate, drama, free verse, alliteration, improvisation.
