This product is one I created to help my students get comfortable with iambic pentameter before tackling the entire play, Romeo and Juliet. It includes the original prologue as well as a modern translation, and it contains questions that require students to think about terms like: sonnet, rhyme scheme, quatrain, enjambment, and end stop. Additionally, if you are reading a modified version of the play with your students, this would work well in terms of giving them a little bit of scaffolded taste regarding what the original play is like.
