Class Experience

Students can learn an appreciation for Shakespeare's ability to create actual-life personalities out of a five-act poem. 
They will have the chance to evaluate the society of Romeo and Juliet and apply those norms to our own situation.
They will have the chance to evaluate the personalities and decisions of the main characters of the play.
They will have the chance to anticipate becoming involved with some of Shakespeare's other famous characters.
Having taught R & J approximately 35 times in a classroom situation, I am a pretty good guide to get a class through to a logical conclusion or two.  
Homework will involve reading approximately an act at a time.
Study guidelines will be provided for each in advance.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
While Romeo and Juliet is a teen love story, the actual events would be rated G. 
We all need to have a copy of the play that has Act, Scene, and Line numbers in the text.
