The last packet in my Romeo and Juliet series!
In the Act IV & V packet, you get:
Cover Sheet: Have students fill in due dates and reading schedule, with an easy-to-score rubric (you decide grades or points).
Vocabulary Act Four & Five: Do this before reading, and help acquaint your students with the language. I love splitting this up--half independent work, half partner. Students use the text, so it's part scavenger hunt, part puzzle. They also are required to correctly cite lines when they fill in the vocab words. This activity has a KEY.
Notes Pages: As they read, students take notes. There are four pages: two lined, two blank. Help students learn this valuable skill by modeling notes of your own on the board or under a doc cam as you read.
Timeline and Summaries: After each scene, students write the setting and a brief summary.
Critical Thinking Questions: 10 CCSS-aligned questions that promote in-depth answers.
Writing Response: Students examine whether or not Romeo and Juliet could actually be in love. They must use quotes from the text.
I am using this with my freshmen, and it really helps with accountability and ease of use. I have them assemble them, too. Make as much of it independent or pair/group work as you'd like.
