Writing Prompt: You have been assigned the task of introducing Romeo and Juliet to a group of students with no experience of Shakespeare or Shakespearean Theater. With a partner or yourself, outline the points you want to make in your introduction and how you will analyze and explain the theater. You must explain all of the following: 1. Compare Shakespearean theater to theaters today. 2. Compare England in Shakespeare day with theater in the United States today. 3. What are the similarities? 4. What are the differences? 5. What cultural and social aspects affected the Shakespearean theater? Write a Prose Constructed Response (PCR) to introduce Romeo and Juliet. You may use West Side Story as a reference for a modern day drama.
What kind of help do you need? The assignment seems clear to me.
