Product Description
Looking for an activity to deepen and extend your students' thinking about Romeo and Juliet? These 3 activities will do just the trick! Each is a tried-and-true favorite among my own students.

These activities are designed to help students summarize, synthesize, and extend their thinking about the play. Any of these activities would also make a great reading quiz or comprehension check, and all are appropriate for during or after reading.

This resource includes 1-2 page student handouts for each of the following:

ABC Summary Activity: Students summarize characters, events, themes, setting, and plot in this engaging ABC summary activity. This exercise really encourages students to think creatively!
Somebody Wanted But So Then Activity: Students summarize key events of the play from multiple character perspectives. A terrific formative assessment for reading comprehension.
Playing Favorites Activity: Students re-imagine one of the characters from the play into their own high schools, and then make inferences about what a character's favorite things would be. A fun extension activity.

Each of these activities takes approximately 20-40 minutes, and will spark great discussion among your students.

Happy reading to you and your kiddos.
