In Mrs. Carr's English class, students are given the opportunity to perform a scene from Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet for an audience of their peers.  Carr, who divides the famous balcony scene into 5 parts for a "relay" performance, says getting students closer to the text through analysis and performance deepens their understanding. She regularly reminds students of the big picture: "Love it or hate it, it's important to experience and appreciate Shakespeare."  Why?  "He's responsible for huge chunk of the English language!"
