We are sorry you are having problems accessing the notes for the lesson plan “Tragic Love: Introducing Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet”. We have converted the PPT so it will run better on people’s computers. Here is a direct link if that is helpful: http://www.readwritethink.org/lesson_images/lesson1162/TragicLove.swf. As for the handout, I was able to open it fine. The notes open as a PDF. Do you have Adobe Reader installed? If you still have problems, please let me know and I will email you the handout. Thanks – lisa
