Product Description
Do you need for powerful lessons to make Romeo and Juliet relevant to your students?

If you want to teach a successful unit on Shakespeare’s classic play, it is essential that your students make connections to the ideas and issues that matter to them.

Get your students writing, discussing, analyzing, and working through the most important and challenging essential questions of Romeo and Juliet with these powerful and complete lesson plans. The themes covered in these fun Romeo and Juliet activities range from 12th century notions of love to the cycle of violence in the Chicago streets, from parents’ relationships with their children to the culture of live fast, die young, and from 17th century ideas on revenge to the life of a Harlem gangster in the early 20th century.

When you teach Romeo and Juliet with these activities you will:

conquer your students’ writers block with engaging and relevant writing prompts

• have multiple options for ready-to-go activities for when you need to fill a little extra time

challenge your students to think about the themes and conflicts of the play from the inside out by working through thematically relevant creative writing exercises and prompts

bring your students’ critical thinking, writing, and close reading skills to the next level with ready-to-go lessons on rigorous poetry and nonfiction

• push your classes to question their assumptions about violence, gangs, and street culture by engaging them with contemporary nonfiction

teach fun, low-key classes while still fulfilling common core requirements

• engage your classes in dynamic discussions with the critical thinking questions

• watch your classes explore, enjoy, and analyze visual art, photography, poetry, nonfiction, and radio journalism

give your students scaffolding to work through challenging texts by utilizing the proven questions and graphic organizers included here

• quickly and easily grade your assessments by using the rubrics provided

In all, there is enough here for over one month of rigorous, engaging, and fun lessons.
