    I just finished teaching "Romeo and Juliet" to my ninth graders. They loved it.

    I'll give you a hint -- go get yourself a good translation into "modern English" if your teacher doesn't use one. Then, do a search on the Internet for the "bawdy" parts of that play. "Romeo and Juliet" is a lot more interesting when you have some resources to help you understand the jokes and the Early Modern English that Shakespeare wrote in. [​IMG] It actually is rather funny, and a little naughty, if you know enough to know what's going on.

    If you haven't seen it already, go rent the 1995 "Romeo and Juliet" with Leonardo DiCaprio. You likely won't find it boring.

    That is a great movie. I showed it to my class in-between reading. I think it helped them to visualize the play.
