I have my students read a summary of Act 4 of Romeo and Juliet, but I never let them get away without reading Friar Laurence's plan in Shakespearean English. This graphic organizer allows them to break down the plan into ten steps AND write a brief argument about it. This works well with the summary. Students will know the basic story, but this excerpt still allows them to closely read. This can also be used with students who have read the full Act 4 text.
