Part 1: Vocabulary Final – All Classes
All Classes: Monday, December 14
Over the course of the semester, we’ve learned about twenty-seven Greek and Latin roots, and we’ve learned about many more vocabulary words that use those roots to create their meaning. The first part of your exam will have questions on all twenty-seven root words as well as on random vocabulary words from the semester. If you understand the roots, you should also understand the vocabulary words. Study study study! All of the root words from this semester are below. Which ones can you accurately define without looking at your notes?

Guess what, Superstars? You are now officially actors and actresses in Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet! For your fall final, you will demonstrate your analysis of character development by recording a soliloquy from the perspective of one of the characters in the play.
Being familiar with soliloquies is important because most entertainment components entail some sort of soliloquy when dealing with characters in a story. For this Soliloquy final try to put yourself in the shoes of a character from this play that stood out to you as being important. Try and understand the perspectives of the character you’ve chosen. Soliloquies are important to Shakespeare because his plays are full of soliloquies and monologues. Once a reader is able to grasp the ideas of soliloquies and monologues it allows the reader of Shakespeare to grasp the material even more than he/she might not of. Read the requirements for your soliloquy now!
Honors Final – Periods 2 and 6
2nd and 6th: Thursday, December 17
Darling Dears, you are now directors! Woohoo! For your fall final, you will demonstrate your analysis of the play by creating a director’s notebook!
The purpose of a Director’s Notebook is to share your vision for the production of a play with all cast and staff members. Shakespeare’s plays provide very little information about set designs, stage directions, wardrobes, and props. This lack of information has led to many creative retellings of his stories. For your final, you will fill in the gaps of the play by designing the set, writing your own stage directions, selecting quotes to be emphasized, designing character wardrobes, and selecting symbolic props to represent the important concepts in the play.
