We started today by discussion what makes an element in a sentence essential or nonessential. See the lesson at the end of this post for details.
We read Act 2 Scene 3 of Romeo & Juliet and met Friar Lawrence. His relationship with Romeo is a lot like the relationship Juliet shares with the Nurse. He agrees to perform the wedding. Why? Look closely at the end of 2.3 for the answer!
We also looked at 2.6. Here Friar Lawrence warns Romeo and Juliet, “Love moderately.” What do you think he means.
We have no homework tonight. Tomorrow we look at Act 3.1
