BACKGROUND BACKGROUND BACKGROUND
This Prezi includes multiple videos:
modern Shakespeare intro for students
Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Globe
three ROMEO AND JULIET movie trailers
lark and nightingale singing (for Act III, Scene 1)
A worksheet is included for students to write the prologue, line by line, in modern language. Then you can show the PowerPoint that models this.
A second PowerPoint defines oxymoron and paradox and gives examples of each, some from ROMEO AND JULIET.
Although I created this for ROMEO AND JULIET, this has good background videos to introduce Shakespeare for any play!
