Many characters contributed to Julietʼs decision to fake her own death. This PDF file is a great way to lead discussion on cause and effect, characterization, and plot review. You can have students complete this activity in groups, as homework, or as a whole-class. Personally, I like to draw the diagram on the board and use it as a whole-class discussion leader.
Directions: In the empty circles list characters who might have been responsible for Julietʼs drastic choice. Draw more lines and circles branching off the character circles to give support for your answers.
