Teaching Romeo & Juliet this week.

Tomorrow I plan to have them watch the balcony scene from the '68 version (and have them act out portions per JJ's genius lesson plan) and the death scene from "Shakespeare in Love." Haven't decided what scene to have them watch from the Leo DiCaprio version -- maybe the prologue? That movie includes the prologue, right?

Anyway, I'm using that as an excuse to re-watch "Shakespeare in Love." Man, I love this movie. Giant bottle of water + antibiotics + Stoppard screenplay = recipe for feeeeelin' goooood.
