Monday (2/24)


Today in class we started with a formative assessment (translating passages from MSND Acts 1 and 2) that was done in class.  Next we shared love potion/repellent recipes in groups of 4. Then, working with a partner, Sonnet 18 was translated and summed up.

Due:  Typed version of Love Potion/Repellent. It should look like a recipe, similar to the one I distributed in class. Period 4 and 7 were due today and period 6 is due Tuesday.

Vocabulary Words are on QUIZLET (MSND List 1) Quiz is Friday, 2/28.


Tuesday (2/25)

Today we started by analyzing 15 metaphors composed by Shakespeare.  We reviewed the defining characteristics of sonnets, and period 7 wrote  sonnet-ettes in partners and read them aloud.  We began reading MSND 3:1.

His mother was a vot’ress of my order,

And in the spicèd Indian air by night

Full often hath she gossiped by my side

And sat with me on Neptune’s yellow sands,

Marking th’ embarkèd traders on the flood,

When we have laughed to see the sails conceive

And grow big-bellied with the wanton wind;

Which she, with pretty and with swimming gait,

Following (her womb then rich with my young squire),

Would imitate and sail upon the land

To fetch me trifles and return again,

As from a voyage, rich with merchandise.


But she, being mortal, of that boy did die,

And for her sake do I rear up her boy,

And for her sake I will not part with him.

Replace these words with more literal ones:

  • Neptune’s yellow sands
  • merchandise
  • mortal
  • traders
  • flood
  • sails conceived
  • grow big-bellied with the wanton wind
