Product Description
This packet includes two worksheets that help students work through the elements of the Prologue in Romeo and Juliet.

Worksheet 1: The Shakespearean Sonnet

In this activity, students will evaluate the prologue for elements of the Shakespearean sonnet. Students will mark the meter and rhyme scheme, as well as the quatrains and couplets. The link to a recommended (and fun!) video on iambic pentameter is included in the download.

Worksheet 2: Translate the Prologue

In this activity, students will annotate the prologue and then translate it into their own words. This will help students feel more confident in their ability to read Shakespeare and give them a solid understanding of what to anticipate from the play. When students are finished writing their translations, invite them to share with the class. The results are often insightful and humorous!
