Take your students on a virtual field trip to the Folger Shakespeare Library as they embark on their first exposure to Shakespearean works. Students can engage in a deeper understanding of Romeo and Juliet by spending a few days reading, re-reading, and dramatizing the prologue itself. Students will learn about the play's meaning, get to know the style and language of the text, and make inferences about the play's central questions. Watch your students transform into actors right before your eyes, and simultaneously, build adequate background knowledge to support their understanding of Romeo and Juliet
