Product Description
This activity is meant to assess a student's understanding of characterization and literary symbolism. After completing the activity, you should be able to assess each student's depth of knowledge regarding specific characters of Romeo and Juliet.

The entire assignment took my students 2 45-minute class periods to complete; however, duration may vary based on student's understanding of concepts or how detailed you would like the end products to be.

The task challenges students to symbolically analyze a chosen character, and illustrate that character through creative expression.

This resource is a student-facing printable with a detailed write-up of the activity. Document includes step by step directions to complete the activity. The document also features links to resources documenting various literary symbols that students could incorporate into their masks. Links include resources to Symbolic Colors, Universal
Literary Symbols, and Conventional Literary Symbols. Requiring students to research the symbols allows for a technology-based, independent-research aspect to the activity. Also included is a grading rubric for the activity.

**I've done this activity with real masks, that were ordered at the beginning of the school year, decorated with glitter, rhinestones, and feathers galore! But, I've also done a very low-maintenance, foldable version that uses crayons, colored pencils, and markers!

**The Templates for the 'low-maintenance foldable' can be found on my page!!

**This activity was created for a 9th grade English classroom; however, the activity lends itself to flexibility in regards to rigor.
