Grade 9 ELA Module 1, Unit 3, Lesson 11


In this lesson, the first in a two-lesson arc, students will continue their exploration of Romeo’s character development as they begin to work carefully through the Act 3 excerpt 3.1.108–138, in which Romeo kills Tybalt. This passage is a critical turning point in the play and functions as a catalyst for the tragic events that unfold in subsequent scenes.
