Help your students analyze the characters in Romeo & Juliet.
In order for our students to learn to think critically, they need a chance to think independently. When we give them questions that guide them toward an answer, we do part of the work for them. I like to assign tasks that require them to do more of the thinking for themselves. This is an activity that allows them to do so. It also allows them to practice fully developing ideas by having them collect multiple quotes to support their points.
Students will use post-it notes to record quotes that illustrate traits for all of the main characters. Then, they will organize the quotes and make conclusions in their character booklets. Finally, they will work collaboratively to make conclusions about each character while collecting multiple examples to back up each trait.
