In this lesson, we will start to explore Act 1 of Romeo and Juliet. We will focus on the methods that Shakespeare uses to establish conflict right at the start of the play. This lesson covers references to violence and to suicide. If this is a sensitive topic to you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
