4-square character analysis- see document below. The choice of quote is the most important aspect, as from it you support your character traits and pull 3 words to rearrange. The new arrangement of words is the "synthesis" step, where you make something new and meaningful out of an existing passage. Please complete this work and turn in upon your return.

Act I quiz- this is quick but you do need to make it up. "Pyramus and Thisbe" in spiral #7. read the attached myth and answer the questions at the end of the document. Note the similarities between this allusion and Romeo and Juliet. Consider what this inclusion of a tragedy inside a comedy is meant to accomplish, (and if Shakespeare, the master writer is doing it, is "The Most Lamentable Comedy..." really that far off the mark?)
