This lesson is a great one for students to get into the mindset of the two main characters. Each student is given a letter written by a distraught young lady asking for advice. These are actual letters taken from teen magazines. The students are to answer their assigned letter as either Romeo or Juliet, depending on who the letter is addressed to. They must provide specific advice for the letter with anecdotes from the play to back it up. This lesson includes specific instructions, enough letters for your entire class, a peer edit sheet for editing the rough draft, and a rubric. Freshmen have a great time writing these letters and love becoming either Romeo and Juliet at a crucial time in the play.
