To gain the best out of your study of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, I have arranged the following “study page”. Shakespeare’s plays provide ideal practice for learning to write a text response essay, following the TEEL structure. In such essays, you will have an opportunity to show your ability to both plan a logical essay (good sequence of ideas) and to show your ability to insightfully analyse key examples in a text.
This Study Page draws together the various notes, articles and summaries and sample paragraphs that are available on the English Works website.
