It was a perfect weekly plan for my lessons. I was going to give a test on Romeo and Juliet this Thursday, Valentine’s Day. See the irony? Alas, I was not prepared to be met with students saying, “On Thursday, sir? the time is very short” (4.1.1). It was as if they knew we were reading Act IV today. Every student seemed able to quote Friar Lawrence.
It turns out that the history and biology teachers are giving tests on Thursday also. Thus, I had to contemplate what is best for the kids. Do I stick to my plan because it is what I want? Do I give in to kids because they seem to whine?
The truth is that I was not 100% positive I would be ready to give the test on Thursday. Plus, we could use time to write the outline/rough draft of the essay. Therefore, it looks like Thursday will still be for love, Friday will be for the tragedy of love.
