PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In act two of Romeo & Juliet, Juliet famously ponders the importance of names: “What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

In this High Interest Middle School Writing Assignment, your students will research the origin and meaning of their given, middle, and surnames and write an extended response (essay) to the question--What is the meaning of your name?

This assignment includes pre-writing and drafting support, research links and formatting tips for essay writing.

This is my language arts students' second favorite writing assignment, right behind the "Tiger Moms" argument (see my store for this product).
