The Prologue to Romeo and Juliet is short, so why should we spend a whole class on it? Well the reason is that is gives a great introduction to the conflict and the setting of the story. It also provides an opportunity for students to make an early connection with the text and language used.
Shakespearean language is not second language,however,it can be considered a dialect of the English language. I was an ESL teacher for many years and I use a second language listening strategy to introduce the prologue. Students listen to a tape of or their teacher reading the prologue and do an information gap-related activity. I think you and your students will enjoy this packet which contains.
