  • Now we’ll watch the same scene from R+J in two different film interpretations

  • As we watch each clip, you will take notes of the theatrical elements used: costumes and music.

  • While watching, ask yourself, “Why would the director choose those costumes and music for the first meeting between Romeo and Juliet?”

Quick Write: Bottom of 270

  • What is the essence of the first meeting between Romeo and Juliet?

  • On a separate sheet of paper, write a paragraph that explains which interpretation more effectively captures the essence of the first meeting between Romeo and Juliet

  • Your paragraph should be an analytical one—meaning you have a thesis statement and an analytical statement with textual support from your notes as well as reflective commentary to back up your response.

  • Be sure to make specific references to theatrical elements from the film such as costumes, props, and actions.
