Reflection: Relevance Will in the World: Intro Presentation to Romeo and Juliet - Section 3: Wrapping Up


During this presentation, I like to watch to see what elements the students show interest, what they find relevant. Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway, was of big interest today (Who doesn't like The Princess Diaries?). There was also an audible reaction to the length of the school day and year; I asked them to imagine what my classroom looks like at 5 pm, but no one wanted to play that game. The biggest thing that students reacted to was the hygiene practices of London, or lack there of. I think that I will be reading a lot about chamber pots on tomorrow's quiz.
