Hidden Stage Directions and Summarizing

English I Honors students began 1.5 by looking at all the various stage directions that Shakespeare embeds in his text.

We finished up with the tirade Tybalt goes on when he discovers Romeo’s presence.

English 8 students continued with the new unit, which will focus on summarizing and outlining, which in turn relies on determining the main idea of texts. To this end, we reviewed and practiced summarizing.


  • English 8 Studies: complete the final summarizing practice.
  • English I Honors: re-read 1.5 from “She doth teach the torches to burn bright” to the end.
