This newly updated 16 page script is true to the original text but is very readible and accessable to 8th,9th or 10th graders. Contains all the important scenes and examples of all literary elements usually covered with Romeo and Juliet. The script gives you the flexibility to spend as much (or as little) time as you want on the play without being bound by the original text. This version allows you to have kids act out the play, work on staging and scripting, and teach Romeo and Juliet exactly as you always have but with a version that they can understand on their own. Perfect for Regular Education, Special Education,or Gifted classes. Also works well for E.L.L. I have used it successfully with all levels of ninth graders.
