We will watch Leonardo Dicaprio Romeo and Juliet in class as we read the play. This class is the equivalent of a 9th grade high school English credit, but advanced 8th grade students are permitted as well. We will explore and discuss literature and grammar. Students will do a number of writing assignments, including an intensive writing unit, as well as a number of projects. Each week, I will give students a week’s worth of assignments. An honors credit option is available.
