3 B ELL R INGER #2: (A) 2/18 & (B) 2/22 Describe your favorite character from the play. Identify his/her best qualities. Identify any flaws he/she has. Describe what you imagine he/she looks like— don’t use the film version; create your own idea! Explain your answer in a well-developed paragraph with lots of details!!!

4 G RAMMAR : HOW TO USE SEMI - COLONS Rule 1 : Use a semicolon to combine two very closely related complete sentences. Example: She went to the store; it is her favorite place to shop. Rule 2 : Use a semicolon along with a conjunctive adverb and a comma to clarify the relationship between two closely related complete sentences. Conjunctive adverbs include however, therefore, in addition, moreover, subsequently, consequently, instead, and additionally. Example: Romeo killed Tybalt; however, his best friend Mercutio was killed first. Rule 3 : Use a semicolon to separate a series of phrases or clauses that are long or have punctuation, like commas, within them. Example: Romeo’s life is filled with several foil characters such as the Nurse and Lady Capulet, Juliet’s mother figures; Benvolio and Mercutio, Romeo’s best friends; and the Friar and the Nurse, Romeo and Juliet’s mentors.

5 G RAMMAR #2: SEMI - COLONS Rewrite the following sentences combing and adding semi-colons as needed. 1. Romeo loves Juliet. He does not know she is a Capulet. 2. Romeo is an emotional person. He often falls in love very quickly. 3. Romeo has several confidants such as the Friar his mentor Benvolio his cousin and Mercutio his best friend.

12 S TORYBOARD ACTIVITY DIRECTIONS : Choose a scene that you would like to work with for today’s activity. Create a Storyboard for that particular scene. In other words, draw what the audience would see on stage. Choose three “moments” from the scene to draw – the three moments must be somewhat different from each other. Be sure to include both pictures and dialogue. You will not be graded on artistic quality, but you will be graded on effort. In other words, try to add as much detail as possible, even if you are a terrible drawer.

13 S TORY B OARD A CTIVITY You will create THREE separate story boards for your assigned scene, with each one representing what the stage and characters would have looked like during a specific moment in the scene. We’ll present these on the document camera. You will analyze how part of your scene serves as an example of dramatic irony. During presentations, the class will guess what example of dramatic irony occurs in each scene. And, each person will complete a handout while the groups present. STAGE Act #, Scene #
