Product Description
This is the second lesson plan in a series of five for a mini-unit to build students' skills in analyzing comedy, especially in Act 1 of "Romeo and Juliet." It follows "Defining Comedy"

Students
- Watch a clip to learn more about the role of a 'fool' in the 16th century
- Apply vocabulary
- Practice identifying confusing elements of Shakespearean text to apply the best reading strategies
- Actively participate in a dramatic reading
- Analyze a comedic character

Instructors are equipped with
- Warm-up
- Scripted commentary to guide engagement and critical thinking
- Specific questions to guide analysis of the comedy in Act 1, Scene 3
- Optional extension, especially appropriate for Honors / advanced / AP / pre-IB groups, or drama classes
- Printable to guide development and practice of appropriate reading strategies

If an instructor chooses to use the extension on the "fourth wall," the first part of this lesson can also be used in a theater class for work on improvisational techniques, or in analysis of another Shakespearean play.
