PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What secrets might we find on Juliet's phone? on Romeo's?

This is a creative assignment I designed to evaluate students' understanding of characters in Romeo and Juliet; however, it can be used with any character from literature or history...even current "characters" in the news.

The directions for the activity are as follows:

---Imagine that your character exists in our society.
---Imagine a phone homepage that displays his or her apps.
---Choose apps from the following options, and then complete the illustration/discussion component for each. (Brief description= 154-259 words).
---You may be comical, but be sure to accurately represent your character’s traits as we’ve discussed them so far in the play.
---You will be evaluated on creativity and evidence of your understanding of the plot and character.---

---I provide a blank cell phone where students draw or paste a background

They must then choose options under categories that include:

---Entertainment (Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube),
---social connections (Facebook, Instagram, and match.com),
---shopping on Amazon,
---legitimate news, and
---self-indulgence (selfies, bitmoji, ringtones, games).


Students are required to discuss why their character would have accessed or posted various items.

The kids really love this project and I get awesome results.

My project for Romeo and Juliet is especially amusing to the kids because it features Juliet with a speech bubble saying,

"You used to call me on my cell phone"

and a graphic with Romeo's head on Drake's body dancing to that song.

If you have a few skills with Word you can adjust the graphic, if not, I'm sure there's someone around who can help you out.


Thank you for your consideration.
