Honestly. I’ve looked at that scene a hundred times before and I never made the connection! I mean… duh. I’m sure I look like a total idiot admitting that, but there you go. I suppose it’s a different thing to date a distant cousin of your enemy versus his daughter, huh?

Teacher Comics: Writer’s notebooks

The journal entry was: Think of a time when you just did not get along with another person and write about it.TeachComic55

This journal entry was meant to get everyone thinking about the conflict in Romeo and Juliet and I think it worked! If you’re a high school English teacher and you’re not using writer’s notebooks… you should. Although it’s a LOT of reading and grading on the teacher’s part, getting kids to write is one of the more important things you can have students doing.

Sometimes I’m very tempted to use all of my students’ writer’s notebooks for comics. There’s some really clever, brilliant stuff I’d love to tackle. It’s something I’d like to consider for next school year, perhaps.
