Reflection: Flexibility Fated to be Family: Analyzing the Capulet Family in Act 1, Scene 3 - Section 3: Time to Meet Juliet


I chose not to go into detail regarding the Nurse's stories. I can't really explain why specifically-- because I have spent more time on it in the past-- it just didn't feel right. It's important to gauge the temperature of the class (I'm teaching the students, not the curriculum). Just the concept of a wet nurse and her opening story about weaning Juliet totally grossed my students out, so I thought that the memory of Juliet falling backwards and all the sexual innuendo would be a turn off for them. Some classes can handle it-- some even need a little bit of it to maintain attention-- but it just wasn't right for this class.
