PLAY: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
GRADE LEVEL: 9-12
CLASS TIME: 3-4 weeks
The Power Point presentation is the perfect discussion guide to kick-start your class study of Romeo and Juliet. With statements like "Your family always knows best" or "Parents should always have a say in who their son or daughter dates", class discussion is sure to follow. Students will be discussing their opinions on several of the main ideas and themes in Romeo and Juliet, all before even cracking the book! By connecting these themes with their pre-existing opinions, Shakespeare's difficult language will be a little easier to understand.
Alternatively, you could use these prompts to facilitate small group discussion or even for individual written reflection.
