A song called ‘Romeo’

30 Apr

I found yet another awesome contribution from Hip Hop Shakespeare… a song entitled ‘Romeo‘.

How to use it in class?

I could use it as part of a lesson about the ‘balcony scene’.  I could also ask students to listen to song and use it to infer the mood/tone/atmosphere of the play.  Hopefully, students would pick up on the depth and darkness and suggest that it is likely to be a sad play.  That could lead into a discussion about tragedy, and also the fate of the young lovers as flagged in the prologue.
