3 Please write the following in your notes or on your bell ringer sheet: A stanza is a group of lines forming the basic recurring metrical unit in a poem. They are usually grouped together by rhyme scheme or by meter. In a poem, a stanza functions like a paragraph. Poets use stanzas to group together like thoughts and ideas; there should be a clear beginning and end to each stanza, just like there is a clear introduction and conclusion to a paragraph.

4 On your Bellringer sheet, determine where the stanzas are in this poem (just write line numbers). Remember to look at common pattern or rhyme scheme. 1 Oh, talk not to me of a name great in story; 2 The days of our youth are the days of our glory; 3 And the myrtle and ivy of sweet two-and-twenty 4 Are worth all your laurels, though ever so plenty. 5 What are garlands and crowns to the brow that is wrinkled? 6 'Tis but as a dead flower with May-dew besprinkled. 7 Then away with all such from the head that is hoary! 8 What care I for the wreaths that can only give glory! 9 Oh Fame! - if I e'er took delight in thy praises 10 'Twas less for the sake of thy high-sound-ing phrases, 11 Than to see the bright eyes of the dear one discover, 12 She thought that I was not unworthy to love her. 13There chiefly I sought thee, there only I found thee; 14Her glance was the best of the rays that surround thee; 15When it sparkled o'er aught that was bright in my story, 16 I knew it was love, and I felt it was glory.

When Lady Capulet asks Juliet how she feels about being married, what is Juliets answer (line 67), and what does it reveal about her character? 2. The nurse and Lady Capulet are both excited and pleased by Paris proposal but for different reasons. The nurse says Paris is a man of wax and at the end of the scene encourages Juliet to Go, girl, seek happy nights to happy days. What does the nurse see in Paris, and what does it reveal about her attitude toward love and marriage? 3. Lady Capulets lines compose a conceit. A conceit is an extended, exaggerated comparison or metaphor between two unlike thingsin this case, between Paris and a book that needs to be bound. What does Lady Capulet see in Paris that would make him a good match for Juliet? What is Lady Capulets attitude toward love and marriage? 4.

14 Directions: 1. Read the excerpt you are given from either Act 1 scene 3 or In PAIRS assign each person a role. Scene 3 = assign one person to Juliet and the other to Lady Capulet Scene 4 = assign one person to Romeo and the other to Mercutio. 3. Using the interview questions, interview your partner and write down their responses on your worksheet. [When responding to interview questions, stay in character and respond based on what you learned from the scene.] 4. When finished with first interview, switch and do the same for the other character. 5. We will present interviews to the class after all pairs have finished.

15 Be prepared to demonstrate your interview questions and responses to the class. Interview Expectations: Each role should interview only with the questions assigned. You will assume the roles of both the interviewer and your character. Remain in character. All audience members must be respectful and remain quiet with each interview. You have 5 minutes to conduct your interview. Assignment: 20 participation points. I can analyze how character traits effect how characters interact with each other in a literary text.

16 1. Based on the scene you read during your character interviews, identify a specific character trait for the character you where assigned. 2. Justify your answer with a quotation from the scene you read during the interviews. 3. Explain why this quotation supports your character trait. 4. How does this trait effect your characters interaction with other characters in the scene? How does this interaction help you understand the plot? 5. Create a theme statement for your excerpt. Connect the theme a universal idea (something all humans can relate to). [The theme statement must relate to the character and excerpt you studied today in class!] I can analyze how the traits of a character affect how he/she interacts with others (and help drive the plot or develop the theme of a text).
