Today we finished watching Act III (see videos below) and then compared the videos to the same Act in the newer version. 

Following this, we wrote summaries in our journals for Act III and then did the Act III assignment:

Use complete sentences (and a separate sheet of paper) to answer the following questions:
  • Page 906 #1, 3, 4, 8, 10, and 11
  • Page 907 #1 & 2 (read "Vocabulary Skills: Word Origins" and the instructions first; use a dictionary)
  • Pick any scene from R&J that we’ve watched BOTH versions (1978 film, DiCaprio film). Write a paragraph describing them and how the scene is changed or improved by the different interpretation. You'll end up picking a "favorite" or "better" film version in this paragraph and explaining why you prefer it -- use specific details, not just "it was cool"...
These questions are due next class.

The reading, and the pages with the questions, can be read below.
