Thanks to the ACT, we had a late start at school today and were given a few more hours to sleep at home.  Students noisily entered the beautiful Mrs. Smith's class at 11:30, and Mrs. Smith told us the homework for tonight right away.  Tonight's homework is: PLN4, and any missing work that you have not turned in yet.  After discussing tonight's homework, Mrs. Smith showed the class the rest of the Act 3, Scene 5 Romeo and Juliet video.  Act 3, Scene 5, is the scene where Juliet finds out that Romeo has killed Tybalt and is banished from Verona.  Juliet and Romeo meet each other in Juliet's room during the night, but Romeo must leave for Mantua by daylight in order for people to not see him.  After leaving, Juliet gets into a fight with her parents because Juliet's parents are trying to force her to marry Paris.  Once Juliet is threatened by her father and told to go die by her mother, she converses with the Nurse who tells her that she should marry Paris.  Juliet acts like she agrees, then goes to see the Friar.  This is where the video ended, and where we then began to start into the 4th Act.  While with the Friar, Juliet and he came up with a plan to fake her death, so that she can escape from marrying Paris and runaway with Romeo when he returns.  We ended the reading near the end of Act 4, Scene 1, as a result of reduced class time.  Tomorrow we will most likely finish this scene and another one or so, so not only should you be prepared to read, but also be ready for a quiz.
