Act 2, Scene 2:
There were no guiding questions for this scene. Instead, the students worked together to summarize and retell Romeo and Juliet’s dialogue. This is that summary, with contributions from students in first and second blocks.
Act 2, Scene 3:
1. Why does Friar Laurence not want to marry Romeo and Juliet at first?
2. Why does he change his mind?
He changes his mind because he thinks the marriage will unite the two families and end the feud- “For this alliance may so happy prove/ To turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (Friar, lines 91 and 92)
3. Do you think Friar Laurence’s reasons are realistic? Explain your answer with evidence from the play.

Act 2, Scene 4
1. Why is Romeo so happy in this scene?
He is planning on getting married; he has met Juliet; he is no longer worried about Rosaline.
2. What would Mercutio and Benvolio say if they knew about Romeo’s plan to marry Juliet?
Mercutio would get mad; try to stop the plans; Benvolio might tell him to find another woman; they would both tell him he was being stupid. Also, they might remind him of the feud and of Tybalt’s anger at Romeo.
3. The nurse is an adult. Why doesn’t she say something to stop the wedding? Why is she so willing to help?
She wants Juliet to be happy; she thinks the marriage will stop the feud; adds dramatic irony because we know what will happen but the Nurse does not; also ironic because Nurse knows about wedding, but Capulets do not.
