Knowing what plot points happen when is important to having an overall understanding of the main idea of the play. For this learning station, you will be working with the different parts of the plot and how these points fall on the plot line. You will also review the different points of a plot. Follow the steps to complete the Learning Station 1 activities.
The purpose of this learning station is to practice skills necessary for critical thinking, and to gain a greater understanding of the plot events in the text. By the end of this learning station you will be able to: - put the plot events into chronological order. - put the plot events onto a plot line. - identify and define the different plot elements. (review) - describe which specific plot elements are unique in a tragic play. - make predictions about the text - choose the most probable prediction form a group of choices. - defend your prediction choice using supporting evidence from the text.

Based upon what we have learned so far, we are about to read the part of the play that will be the turning point. From the Prologue, we know that Romeo and Juliet die in the end, but we do not know how or why they die. Using your prior knowledge, make a prediction of an event that you believe may happen in the upcoming act.
Click on the button below make your prediction. Double Click anywhere on the board to post your response; be sure to type in your name before you post your prediction.
Now that we have made a few suggestions, take a minute to browse around the prediction wall. Choose a prediction from the wall that you feel is the most likely to happen in the play. Click on the button below to explain your choice. You will be prompted to log into your ptsdwebapps account before you will be able to view the form.
