This lesson continues to build students’ skills in making cumulative connections across the text. The text selection for this lesson is Act 5.3.85–120. In this scene, Romeo commits suicide in Juliet’s tomb. Students will complete a close reading for this passage and then work through a series of text-dependent questions that help them build meaning by connecting elements of this passage with passages read earlier in the unit.
