Those Crazy Kids: An Exploration of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet is a horrible story, beautifully told, and a study of this play is essential to a well-rounded education.

Description

Class Experience

I've been teaching this play to young learners since 2003. Though we will be having a lot of fun, this class will include some serious discussions about issues about violence and suicide, as well as decision-making and responsibility.
We will be using the Folger Shakespeare Library text.  There are many formats available for free download, but please be sure to select a version, like the PDF, that has line numbers. 

Download here:

If you would like a solid book with great footnotes, you can buy the Folger paperback edition here:

Students should also have a notebook dedicated to this class. Done well, this notebook can be a resource for future Shakespeare courses.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Mature themes, including suicide and manslaughter.
