This complete set of activities, worksheets, and answer sheets is designed to be used with K. McCreary's adapted script of Shakespeare's tragedy "Romeo and Juliet". Figurative language exercises are provided for each act. Metaphor, simile, personification, pun and foreshadowing are defined, and selected quotes are given for student practice in the identification of each literary device.
Additional exercises for each act include true/false, comprehension questions (called Quizzes) that require both lower and upper level thinking skills, graphic organizers, exploration of character traits, and writing projects. The writing projects cover letters from one character to another, diary entries, a compare and contrast essay, a wanted poster, and a character sketch.
These materials have been successfully used with students from upper elementary to tenth grade.
