With the Common Core’s new emphasis on non-fiction, informational texts, it’s important to bring in fresh resources to engage our students. Toward the end of your study of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, use the following lesson materials to help students make real-world connections between the late-1500’s play and their own lives.
Lesson materials include:
Links to a CNN video clip and New York Times editorial detailing the case of Admira Ismic and Bosko Brkic, a young couple in Sarajevo from different religious backgrounds who died together as they tried to flee their war-torn city in 1993.
