PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Add a modern twist to your study of Shakespeare with this fun but challenging handout where students will determine whether lines of text are taken from Taylor Swift songs or William Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.

This free 2-page PDF has a student handout and an answer key, including the song title of the Swift lyrics and the act/scene/speaker of each Shakespearean line.

By the end of the activity, students will see that The Bard’s language can be pretty easy to understand and Swift’s lyrics can be downright Shakespearean.

Hope you and your students enjoy this lighthearted activity, which was designed to be used with Romeo & Juliet but could successfully be used with any of Shakespeare’s plays.
